Loblaw named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers 2 years in a row – Dominion Lending Centres Clearlease

RICHMOND, Va. – (April 22, 2011) Clearlease.com Reports Loblaw Companies Limited (Loblaw), one of Canada’s largest private sector employers, has been named one of Canada’s Top Greenest Employers, by Mediacorp Canada Inc, for the second consecutive year. Loblaw achieved this notable recognition for its industry leading green initiatives and its success in integrating environmental values into its corporate culture.

“At Loblaw, we are proud of the way our colleagues, employees and franchise owners have supported our efforts to be more environmentally conscious,” said Bob Chant, vice-president, corporate affairs, Loblaw Companies Limited. “Whether it’s sourcing our products sustainably; encouraging use of reusable bags in place of plastic bags; improving our energy use and fuel efficiency or inspiring our customers to make environmentally friendly purchasing decisions, we have a responsibility as Canada’s leading grocery retailer to reduce the environmental impact of our day-to-day operations.”

Some of Loblaw’s environmental accomplishments in 2010 include:

— Helping protect our oceans: In 2009 Loblaw announced a
commitment to source all seafood sold in its retail locations
from sustainable sources by the end of 2013. Last year’s
achievements include increasing the number of Marine
Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood
products available to customers and represents the most of any
Canadian retailer and adopting a policy of selling 100 per cent
International Seafood Sustainability Foundation canned tuna to
facilitate the transition to more MSC-certified
products. Loblaw also launched a public awareness campaign that
included providing a documentary about the state of our oceans,
The End of the Line, to more than 700 Canadian schools across
the country and the launch of a sustainable seafood Facebook
site and website,
www.oceansfortomorrow.com.

— Reducing the use of plastic shopping bags: In 2010, Loblaw
customers used 73 per cent fewer plastic shopping bags, which
means 2.5 billion fewer bags were used by Loblaw customers
since 2007. Loblaw also introduced two new bagless stores where
plastic shopping bags are not available, bringing the total
number of bagless stores across Canada to seven.

— Reduced energy consumption: Through store renovations Loblaw
achieved a 3.2 per cent reduction in electricity use per square
foot relative to 2009. Loblaw continues to investigate
opportunities to reduce energy consumption through technology
advancements. This includes incorporating alternative
refrigeration design systems to help reduce refrigerant leaks;
installing automated energy management systems in select stores
to reduce lighting and energy use; and installing photovoltaic
solar panels on some store rooftops.

— Improved fuel efficiency: In 2010, Loblaw improved fleet fuel
efficiency by 2.3 per cent, which is equivalent to 18 trips
around the world in a Class 8 transport truck. Loblaw continues
to upgrade its fleet with low emission trucks, and was the
first Canadian grocery retailer to test a Class 8 transport
truck run by hybrid technology.

— Increased waste diversion: In 2010 Loblaw saw a reduction of
2.3 million kilograms of packaging contained in Loblaw control
brand products, moving the Company closer to achieving a five
per cent reduction in the packaging used in Loblaw control
brand products by the end of 2014.

— Fostering green advocates: Partial proceeds from the purchase
of the $0.05 plastic shopping bags have been donated by Loblaw
to WWF to support a number of environmental initiatives such as
the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanupâ?¢, National Sweater
Dayâ?¢ and the WWF Green CommUnity Grants program that
awarded grants totaling $600,000 to Canadian schools for
environmental projects.

— Increasing our greener options: In 2010 we introduced 37 new
PCÂR G.R.E.E.NÂR products ranging from hypoallergenic diapers,
lawn and garden, stationery, pet accessories to household
cleaning products to help encourage customers to reduce their
environmental footprints.

“Loblaw continues to be a corporate leader in sustainability,” says Hadley Archer, WWF’s Vice-President of Strategic Partnerships. “Thanks to their dedication, we are seeing responsible changes happening in the global seafood industry. Loblaw doesn’t stop there. The Company also generously supports WWF campaigns that motivate Canadians to make small changes that will have a global environmental impact. Congratulations to everyone at Loblaw on this achievement.”

Next month, Loblaw will be releasing its 2010 Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which will provide updated information on the full range of Loblaw’s CSR commitments and achievements. Please visit the responsibility page at loblaw.ca for more information.

Launched in 2007, the Canada’s Greenest Employers competition is organized by the editors of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. This special designation recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a corporate culture of environmental awareness, have developed exceptional earth-friendly initiatives and attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership.
