Safeway Sources More than Half of Seafood Sustainability
Safeway continues to make progress in sourcing seafood sustainably, surpassing the 51 percent milestone toward having all fresh and frozen seafood responsibly caught or farmed by the end of 2015, according to the companyâ€™s 2013 sustainability report.
Also in 2013, Safeway achieved no. 2 ranking on Greenpeaceâ€™s sustainable seafood retail scorecard.
Safeway last year announced a sustainable sourcing policy for palm oil and a goal to source 1 million pounds of sustainable palm oil in 2014.
Other environmental highlights of the report include:
- Making progress toward Safewayâ€™s 2015 goal to eliminate 1 billion plastic and paper bags in its stores, announcing that it already eliminated over 300 million bags since 2011.
- Setting a goal to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020 compared to a 2010 baseline.
- Saving more than 75 million gallons of water across its stores.
