The Goals Database
Albertsons CompaniesView Profile
As we work to make our operations more efficient, we understand the need to work toward reducing the overall environmental footprint of our business. It is critical that we achieve business growth while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and use of other important resources.
We work to minimize the water we use, especially in areas of elevated water risk.
Once we have minimized our water use, we look to alternative sources to help reduce freshwater withdrawals, including recycled water, reclaimed water, and rainwater harvesting.
We‘re looking to restore water resources in the most critical regions in which we operate.
