SALISBURY, N.C. -- Five-time Energy Star Partner awards recipient Food Lion LLC here is gearing up for a new program in energy efficiency, this time targeting deli employees.
The month-long educational campaign, slated to roll out later this year, is being designed in support of the U.S. National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency, Food Lion said yesterday.
The purpose of the educational campaign is to encourage associates to actively reduce the amount of energy they use at work whenever possible. Additionally, Food Lion said it will share its energy conservation knowledge with its sister banners, including Bloom, Bottom Dollar Food, and Harveys.
Food Lion last year became a charter member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-facilitated Leadership Group, a collaboration of utilities, state agencies, and energy consumers working together on efficient energy practices. The Leadership Group is driving the National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency. The chain claims to have more Energy Star stores than any other U.S. retailer, and frequently works with the EPA and DOE on voluntary conservation efforts.
Food Lion LLC is a subsidiary of Brussels-based Delhaize Group. Food Lion LLC operates more than 1,200 supermarkets, either directly or through affiliated entities, under the names of Food Lion, Bloom, Bottom Dollar Food, Harveys and Reid's.
