Sustainability at Coles

7.1 rating for Sustainability, based on 65 reviews
Please comment on your company's efforts in this area.
Place high importance on it but actions could be higher in volume to reduce environmental footprint given the size of the company.
They are trying but quietly in the background
Innovating and working on smarter ways of working
There are several projects ongoing to tackle such issues
Environmentally friendly initiatives, recycling etc. rolled out both in the support centre and in stores.
Coles' has diverted aprox 1 billion pieces of plastic away from landfill and be recycled, further to this the own brand team has reduced Salt in our private label products by over 100 million KGs a year. Following this, Coles has also signed a deal with solar panels and will be able to power a states worth of stores (I believe, may need to be fact checked)through solar power.
Similarly to charity and diversity work, this is something that's always on the agenda.
It is constantly trying to lessen waste and improve recycling and efficiency.
Some measures in place to incentivize ideas in this space, some action taken
Projects specifically designed to address this
Lots of efforts and communications about this lately. Coles innovation and nurture funds have assisted in this. A recent coffee cup recycling station has been set up and have been very successful. Solar panels to power supermarkets is another large project in the works
Actively pursues suppliers who are conscious of this, lots of bin options.
There are constant updates on how teams are trying to reduce the SSC's environmental impact through recycling coffee cups and opening up to suggestions from team members.
