The recent arrival of Carrefour’s new Director, Rémi Feipeler, has instilled a new enthusiasm for ethical and responsible purchasing, as well as many other positive changes in energy transition.
A new refrigeration system for the store – which is in the process of being implemented – will lead to an energy saving of 25 percent. This new central refrigeration system runs on CO2 and no longer on freon, which makes it possible to divide by 2,700 the superstore’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The store will seek alternatives to single-use packaging and a delivery service with an electric vehicle carried out by a service provider with the Carrefour logo, the sorting of plastics and cardboard, and the installation of 100-percent LED lighting.
Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, Director of the MTE, praised the leading role of Carrefour Monaco and said she “knows how to count on the store to continue to change the purchasing habits of consumers who live and come to work in the Principality”.
Carrefour Monaco has 300 daily employees who, through the National Pact, will be made aware of the Principality’s energy transition.
The Pact offers each of us the opportunity to reflect on our impact on the planet and makes it possible for us to personally commit to developing a carbon-free Monaco.
