Sustainability

Building sustainable worth in an environmentally friendly manner.

We are committed to operating our businesses in an environmentally responsible manner.

Empire’s focus on community is further shaped by their commitment to improving environmental performance through reasonable, practical, environmentally responsible business practices that are in the long-term best interests of our shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers and communities.

Sobeys has introduced initiatives like the reusable Green Bag for Life, in-store conservation programs, using LEED standards to guide their stores and distribution centres construction and they continue to look for ways to reduce their environmental impact.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Empire, stewardship over stakeholders interests in Sobeys is the responsibility of the Empire Board of Directors. Every Director is involved in assessing the performance and progress of Sobeys’ initiatives, understanding the major risks to Sobeys’ ability to deliver results.
