Retailers Can Plug Into
With a mission to help the grocery sector reduce its environmental
footprint, the Manomet Grocery Stewardship Certification (GSC)
program and the Retail Learning Institute (RLI) have teamed up
to provide sustainability-focused online courses for retailers.
The free training program focuses on delivering low- or no-cost
operational actions that grocery store employees can take to
become more energy- and resource-efficient.
The first course, “Top 5 Energy Savers,” highlights five easy
operational practices retailers can implement to use energy more
efficiently, resulting in cost savings of up to $15,000 per year,
according to the organizations.
The GSC program by Manomet, based in Plymouth, Mass., is
designed to help food retailers assess and better understand the
cost and environmental impacts of current business practices.
Founded in 2012, the program has enrolled nearly 900 grocery
stores in the U. S. and Canada to help engage employees on
operational sustainability strategies as well as review store-level
practices and equipment to better increase energy efficiency,
boost revenue and lower costs.
The GSC and RLI will launch additional courses this year,
including “The Top 10 Ways to Help Your Grocery Store Reduce
Waste” and a video on how to reduce toxic chemicals and
hazardous waste at grocery stores.
service and shopping experiences,” says Jim Dorey, pres-
ident of PriceRite. “The modern, efficient LED lighting
we provide in our PriceRite Marketplace stores not only
helps reduce our environmental footprint but also looks
good and helps customers locate the great deals and fresh
produce we offer in-store.”
LEDing Edge Lighting Inc.—which supplies grocery
displays for retailers such as Publix, Safeway, Meijer,
Walmart, Gelson’s and Stater Bros.—offers a number of
LED solutions for produce, baked goods, refrigerators
and freezer cases that are specifically designed for energy
efficiency and longevity.
“Some of our lights have been operational in clients
that have been operating for over eight years,” says Bob
Semerau, marketing and sales manager for Camarillo,
Calif.-based LEDing Edge.
The company’s new Mini Orion IB 68 tube light, which
the company also calls Seal Bright, is designed to give a
higher efficacy with better color rendition; it’s also waterproof, making wash-down and cleanliness easier to maintain. The Mini Orion series is available in three levels of
brightness, with its Ultra Bright level featuring 63 LEDs
per foot and 5 watts of power usage.
