Most of the energy used by Coles relates to refrigeration, lighting and climate control in our stores. Despite growing our store network, our carbon emissions have been declining over the past five years due to a range of energy saving initiatives.
Our major areas of energy use are refrigeration, lighting and climate control for our stores. We’re investing in the latest technology to minimise our impact on the environment.
Here’s how we’re doing it...
A new supermarket at Coburg North will be Coles’ first partly solar-powered supermarket in Victoria, with 399 solar panels installed on the roof to generate up to 100 Kilowatts of power. Coles is also trialling the use of solar power by adding panels to the roof of an older supermarket at Budgewoi in NSW to confirm that solar power can be integrated with older electrical infrastructure without disrupting store operations.
Reduction of vehicle movements, and kilometres driven are some of the ways we aim to reduce overall carbon emissions in Coles’ supply chain.
Coles was proud to be awarded the first Green Star rating for an Australian supermarket in 2015. Coles Hallam in Melbourne’s south east was awarded a 4 Star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).
Presently Coles Hallam uses 20 per cent less energy than an equivalent supermarket of its size. The air-conditioning and refrigeration plants work together, and the air-conditioning automatically adjusts based on the number of people in the store. The store uses natural refrigerant, combined cooling for more efficient temperature control, LED lighting and has extra insulation in the ceiling.
“Coles was determined to develop a ‘supermarket of the future’ – and in doing so, has set a new benchmark for sustainable supermarket design in Australia”
Romilly Madew, Chief Executive Officer, GBCA.
