Among the company's new initiatives include installing glass doors and LED lighting on refrigerated cases, reducing energy by 60 percent per refrigerated case; installing sales floor LED lighting in newly constructed and remodeled stores; and implementing high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans throughout its grocery distribution center.
Additionally, Stater Bros.' new construction sites are tracking and repurposing materials to reduce waste diversion into landfills, and the company has replaced areas of drought-resistant landscaping with water-thirsty vegetation.
“Stater Bros. Markets is very proud to expand our environmentally friendly efforts,” said Jack H. Brown, the company's chairman and CEO. “We are committed to implementing earth-friendly business practices and protecting the environment for many generations to come because we just don’t do business in a community we are part of the community.”
