C&S Wholesale Grocers Releases Sustainability Report
KEENE, NH - Today’s consumers are putting health at a higher priority on their checklist, both for themselves and for the environment. In doing so, shoppers are seeking out products and companies that are supporting these goals. Retailers like C&S Wholesale Grocers are keeping these habits in mind when flushing out their operational strategies. Recently, C&S released its Sustainability Report, detailing its commitment to driving three core areas: preserving the environment, working to eliminate waste, and lessening its carbon footprint.
“At C&S, one of our core Values is to continuously make our communities better,” Bob Palmer, Chief Executive Officer, stated. “We live this Value every day from the core of our business, which is to feed our families and neighbors—to ensure that the communities where we live and work enjoy a healthy environment.”
C&S consistently looks at ways to support sustainable operations and business practices to help support a healthy environment. Efforts made by and across the company are highlighted in C&S’s Sustainability Report, which was released on Earth Day, April 22.
“We consistently look at ways to support sustainable operations to preserve the environment, eliminate waste, and lessen our carbon footprint,” commented Palmer. “We are proud of our efforts to create a better planet and world. We are planning today for a brighter tomorrow, not because we have to but because we want to. It’s more than a job. It’s our legacy.”
The report details the criteria and standards it leverages to drive practices such as recycling; waste reduction/reuse to reduce waste; and facility and transportation energy reduction, to find eco-friendly alternatives that help lessen its carbon footprint, stated the release.
