SUPERVALU Receives National Awards For Sustainability Achievements

Continuing to be recognized as a leading retailer in the area of environmental sustainability, SUPERVALU INC. (NYSE: SVU) recently received multiple national honors for its cutting-edge sustainability efforts. First, the company is featured in the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) 2012 “Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index”, which honors companies for both environmental performance as well as transparency in this area. SUPERVALU received the highest score among national grocery retailers in this report. This honor comes on the heels of SUPERVALU also receiving two major honors as part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2012 GreenChill Environmental Achievement Awards.

Through efforts like these, SUPERVALU reduced total emissions by three percent in the past year alone, with total waste reduction of over 11 percent across its network of 2,400 retail stores nationwide. Since 2007, SUPERVALU has consistently lowered business expenses and increased recycling revenues through its companywide sustainability efforts, bringing $56.8 million in total savings to the company.

“SUPERVALU has built a much-deserved reputation as a leader in the area of environmental sustainability, and that effort is very important to our business moving forward,” said Wayne Sales, president, chief executive officer and chairman, SUPERVALU. “Reducing our carbon footprint and limiting our waste is not only good for the environment, it’s good for the bottom line.”

SUPERVALU received two of the highest honors from GreenChill in 2012. SUPERVALU won the prestigious Distinguished Partner Award, given to the organization that helps best advance the overall mission of the GreenChill program, becoming the only company to win this award twice. Additionally, the company’s Albertsons Carpinteria store earned the Best Certified Store Award – the top honor for an individual store - for being the first in the nation to use only all-natural emission refrigerants. SUPERVALU won the same award in 2010 for its groundbreaking Chestnut Hill Star Market store. No other company has won either of these awards more than once.
