Green planet 4.2 Decarbonizare

    Our goals

    Our progress in 2022

    In 2022, we continued to implement initiatives defined in our decarbonisation plan validated by SBTi. This year, we had a strong focus on energy demand, as energy prices continued to increase, due to global energy prices. For yet another consecutive year, we covered a 100% of electricity consumed in operations with guarantees of origin. We also extended this approach to Żabka stores run by independent franchisees. More than 57% of electricity used comes from renewable sources thanks to own PV installations and guarantees of origin. In addition, we implemented several initiatives reducing the energy consumption at store, e.g. further LED and adaptive light replacements, extended hours without outdoor store lighting, as well as further rollout of closed-door cooling cabinets. As a result of actions taken, we managed to save 9,5 GWh of energy and avoid more than 200 thousand of CO2e in franchise stores.

    We also invested in gradual fleet replacement – 500 hybrid cars were introduced in 2022, mainly for our sales field-forces, with further rollout expected in 2023. We also introduced first electric vehicles for our employees whose voluntarily joint e-mobility programme as its ambassadors. As per decarbonisation plan, we will continue fleet replacements in the upcoming years. 

    In addition, we also avoided CO2e emissions, by optimising dry ice consumption by replacing deliveries chilled with this refrigerant with dedicated cooling transport delivering goods to the stores. We also performed more frequent technical inspection of installations in distribution centres. As a result of actions taken, we were able to maintain 25% GHG emissions reduction comparing to base year 2020 and avoid more than 20 thousand of CO2e in own operations.

    We also continued to cooperate with our business partners in the supply chain. During 2022 suppliers’ meeting, we introduced Fair Business platform, where suppliers can share their carbon management practices.
