Safeway surpassed our goal to source 1 million pounds of responsibly produced palm oil in 2014 by sourcing over 2.6 million pounds of responsible palm oil as of October 1st. We also set a new goal for 2015.
The oil squeezed out of oil palm fruit is used in many different products and it comes from oil palm plantations based in tropical countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Nigeria. Some palm oil production has been linked to deforestation, wetland destruction and human rights violations, such as child labor and human trafficking.
Reusable bags are an easy way you can make a lasting impact on the environment. By the end of 2015, our goal is to reduce the number of plastic and paper bags used by 1 billion. And we’re well on our way toward that goal today. You can help by switching to reusable bags when you shop.
Shoppers and retailers around the United States are growing more and more concerned about the negative impact of single-use bags — including Safeway. Did you know that consumers use more than 100 billion plastic shopping bags every year?
Deployment of Alternative Fuel Vehicles has already enabled AT&T to avoid the purchase of 7.7 million Gallons of Gasoline
October 9, 2013 /3BL Media - Halfway there and not breaking speed, AT&T has reached the halfway mark of its commitment to invest up to $565 million to deploy approximately 15,000 alternative fuel vehicles over the course of a ten year period through 2018. Since AT&T began its commitment, the company has placed over 7,500 alternative fuel vehicles in 44 states nationwide.
There are two things that jump out at you while reading through AT&T’s 2012 Sustainability Report: the company has ambitious goals to reduce energy and water use, and the company collaborates with various groups, including nonprofits, to meet those goals. The collaborations are paying off as AT&T is close to meeting its 2014 goal to reduce energy intensity 60 percent from a 2008 baseline. Last year, the company achieved a 57 percent reduction.
