7-Eleven Corporate Sustainability
2025 Goal: Offset our energy footprint in stores and offices by 20% using a baseline of 2015.
Offsetting our impact on the environment is a major focus for 7‑Eleven. Therefore we’ve taken big steps by strategically investing in several energy and sustainability programs that increase efficiency and reduce waste and resource consumption.
We’ve implemented several innovative measures, like LED lighting, energy management systems and high-efficiency HVAC units. As a result, 7‑Eleven has offset annual CO2 emissions by an estimated 300,000 metric tons and decreased annual electricity use by 21%.
LED lighting - a bright idea in energy conversation
7‑Eleven’s LED lighting program is part of our energy-efficient store design standard. LED lights are energy-efficient, reduce the use of hazardous materials and comply with local regulations to reduce light pollution. Plus, they improve the quality of lighting, while supporting a safer store and a better shopping experience for customers. Therefore this program is a big contributor to our overall CO2 offset goals.
Conserving a natural resource
7‑Eleven understands that efficient use of water helps reduce the demands on our water supply and preserve an essential natural resource. To reduce water consumption, we’re installing low-flow aerator faucets as part of our standard energy-efficient design plan for all new stores.
Managing the energy we use
7‑Eleven has strengthened our energy management strategy by implementing energy management systems (EMS) in stores. They’re used to monitor, control and optimize the performance of HVAC and refrigeration equipment. EMS enables remote control of HVAC and other energy-consuming
