Grupo Éxito works on reducing, mitigating and offsetting greenhouse effect gas emissions in its logistics and business operations.
We established a strategic alliance with supplier Green Yellow, an affiliate of Casino Group, to implement energy efficiency solutions at the organization's sales outlets.
In 2012 a pilot was carried out at Éxito Salitre, Éxito Bogotá North and Éxito Buenavista in Barranquilla, which included activities such as: controls to prevent waste of cold air in refrigerators; improvements and controls to refrigeration and air conditioning equipment; and change-over to more efficient lighting sources. At Éxito Salitre, for example, the pilot program produced savings of 11.1% from May to December of 2012 compared to the previous year. Additionally, we continue to evaluate the implementation of a renewable energy project.
16 Éxito Express stores in Bogotá are now being restocked at night in order to optimize transportation of products to the stores, increasing from 3 to 4 the number of stores covered per truck.
Grupo Éxito performs ongoing programs with transportation suppliers to raise awareness on the relevance of environmental impacts.
