Proper Waste Management
Proper waste management involves the various strategies, policies, and actions taken by the Group to effectively prevent, reduce, sort, treat, and dispose waste.
Why It Matters to Us
Waste is a key source of carbon emissions that we aim to reduce. We acknowledge that we produce waste across our various business units, including packaging, paper, plastics, metals, glass, electronic, and organic food waste. We also create large amounts of material waste during new store openings and renovations. Our goal is to be aware, so we can work to reduce. Although waste is inevitable, we aim to promote circularity and practice the 7Rs - rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle, and rot to reduce waste from ending up in landfills or polluting our natural environments whenever possible.
