Food Lion was one of the first companies to voluntarily commit to the EPA’s GreenChill advanced refrigeration partnership, an initiative through which companies pledge to go above and beyond regulatory requirements in protecting the ozone layer and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Being a GreenChill partner:
Three Food Lion stores incorporate ozone-friendly refrigeration systems, which reduce the amount of refrigerants needed to keep products cool or frozen by more than 60 percent. Food Lion has opened its first LEED-certified store in Columbia, S.C. This store also uses this technology and will bring the company’s total to four stores in its operating area.
Food Lion employs numerous technologies and initiatives to conserve energy, including:
Food Lion is testing green generators - those that run on bio-diesel fuels such as cooking oils - at two stores to produce electricity during the hottest days of the summer when residential and commercial air conditioners are being maximized. By operating its own generators during these peak times, Food Lion helps lower the amount of electricity the utilities must make to meet demand.
