  • Woolworths - Woolworths partners with Foodbank to help end hunger
    will receive a separate tax receipt Foodbank is a national charity which acts as a pantry to over 2 500 charities community groups and schools who provide food relief to their local communities The End Hunger report issued by Foodbank Australia on Tuesday said the number of people seeking out hunger relief had grown by 11 last year with 70 of organisations feeding the needy reporting an increasing demand for their services The fundraising campaign deepens the longstanding ties between the charity and the supermarket and means Woolworths is both the inaugural and exclusive retailer to accept donations to Foodbank Woolworths director of supermarkets Tjeerd Jegen said Woolworths has been in partnership with Foodbank for over a decade and we are already the largest donator of food to the organisation Last year we donated 1 5m kgs to Foodbank while over 90 percent of our 800 stores now have food donation programs in place which sees surplus food redirected to local organisations rather than being sent to landfill said Jegen We are now going one step further and enabling donations to be made through our registers to Foodbank meaning our customers can have a direct impact on the fight against hunger in Australia Customers can add a few dollars onto their shopping bill or make a one off donation through any manned or self serve checkout said Jegen CEO of Foodbank Australia John Webster said Woolworths is a great partner assisting us in many ways including being the biggest single donor of food This new initiative is just another example of how Woolworths is always looking for innovative ways in which they can get behind our work A donation for as little as 50c will enable Foodbank to provide a meal to someone who is struggling to provide for themselves

  • Woolworths - Award confirms Woolworths is Australia’s greenest supermarket
    and drive of the Woolworths team over the past 5 years to create a more sustainable business We are very humbled to have received this award especially in an area where many people don t expect a supermarket to be making such good achievements Mr Jegen said Woolworths has publicly committed to a set of clear measurable and very ambitious targets in its sustainability strategy and we are now seeing some very good results in key areas such as food waste and carbon emissions We have a goal of a 40 carbon reduction by 2015 effectively capping our emissions at 2007 levels despite the growth in store numbers This has meant that while we opened a record number of new stores this last year our emissions stayed the same as the previous year Our target of zero food waste from our stores is well underway now with more than 2200 tonnes of food being rescued for charities and nearly 5000 tonnes of food waste going to earth power programs In our newest stores we have reduced the carbon emissions per square meter by more than 22 over the stores we were building in 2007 This is being achieved with energy efficient lightning air conditioning and low impact carbon refrigeration Mr Jegen said while there is much more to be achieved across all sectors of sustainability Woolworths has the foundations now to really drive meaningful outcomes One thing I have learned in retail is that you can t simply wake up one morning and declare yourself a green business Making the changes to a more sustainable model required investment and commitment I am really pleased that the team at Woolworths has worked so hard on these initiatives for many years now and I am sure it is just the start of
