IperCoop In Ascoli Piceno “Greenest” Store In Italy
The IperCoop Città delle Stelle hypermarket in Ascoli Piceno is the only store in Italy with an EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) certificate.
EMAS is an environmental policy tool, recognized in Europe, to promote continual improvements in environmental efficiency in industry.
It is open to companies and organisations who want to evaluate and improve their environmental performance.
The certificate was issued to IperCoop Città delle Stelle on the basis of the results obtained in 2015, thanks to efficient installations, waste reduction and customer awareness initiatives, as well as continuous improvements in favour of sustainability.
During the year, the store continued with its initiative to encourage the proper disposal of vegetable oil waste from the kitchen, which has allowed the recovery of 3,240 kg of oil.
The IperCoop store is part of the Coop Alleanza 3.0 retail network, the largest of the consumers’ cooperatives that make up the Coop system.
