Co-op installs LED lighting

John Wood ·

Central England Co-operative is rolling out LED lighting to 118 of its food stores and petrol filling stations.

As part of the society’s corporate responsibility strategy, the business is aiming to tackle sustainability across all of its business operations. In 2015, Central England Co-operative was awarded the Carbon Trust’s internationally recognised environmental certifications for reducing organisational water use, carbon and waste outputs and for engaging with the supply chain on sustainability, making it the fourth organisation worldwide – and the first in the retail sector – to achieve all four Carbon Trust Stand-ards.

The latest venture involves installing LED lighting the 118 sites over the next 12 months, and will be delivered by Engynius Ltd.

Central England Co-operatives LED said its lighting programme would reduce the Soci-ety’s carbon footprint by around 3.4% over the next two years and will save enough electricity to power 1600 homes a year, saving approximately £725,690 per year at the 118 food stores.

During the LED lighting initiative, customers are being kept informed informed through targeted messaging both in store and on social media using the hashtag #my-coopideas.
