Carrefour Monaco is committed

On Monday morning, Carrefour Monaco signed the National Pact for Energy Transition.

The recent arrival of the new Director, Rémi Feipeler, has inspired a new conception of ethical and responsible purchasing, as well as many positive changes in the energy transition.

Among other flagship actions, let us quote:

- a new store refrigeration system - which is in the process of being implemented - and which leads to an energy saving of 25%. This new central refrigeration system runs on CO2 and no longer on freon, which makes it possible to divide by 2,700 greenhouse gas emissions - alternatives to single-use packaging (deployment of bulk and offer of sustainable packaging and eco-responsible) - a delivery service with electric vehicle carried out by a service provider with the Carrefour logo - sorting of plastics and cardboard boxes - implementation of 100% LED.

Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, Director of the MTE, praised the prescribing role of Carrefour Monaco and said "knowing how to count on the store to continue to change the purchasing habits of consumers who live and come to work in the Principality" . Indeed, Carrefour Monaco has 300 daily employees who, through the National Pact, will be made aware of the Principality's energy transition.

As a reminder, the creation of the National Pact was desired by HSH Prince Albert II, who was the first signatory. The tool offers each of us the opportunity to reflect on our impact on the planet and allows us to personally embark on the path of a carbon-free Monaco.
