Transport, warehousing and stores

As a retail company, we assume responsibility for climate and resource protection within the areas of the value chain on which we can have a direct impact: from the warehousing and refrigeration of products to transport and the operation of our stores and administrative offices. We pursue two central goals in this effort: First, we intend to reduce climate-relevant emissions produced in connection with our business operations. Second, we intend to lower our consumption of resources. By taking this approach, we also help lower our operating costs.
