Albert Heijn Awarded The Most Sustainable Supermarket In The Netherlands
Albert Heijn has been recognised as the most sustainable supermarket chain in the Netherlands for the third time in a row.
The announcement was made during the Sustainable Brand Awards 2019 in Amsterdam.
Albert Heijn CEO, Marit van Egmond, said, "We have been committed to people, animals, and the environment for years.
"We do this together with our growers and farmers, suppliers and other partners. Fortunately our efforts are being recognised again."
The selection was based on the findings of the annual survey, Sustainable Brand Index.
It is a study where Dutch consumers share their perception of sustainability of well-known brands.
In 2018, the retail chain took significant steps in various areas like the reduction of plastic packaging materials, combating food waste, and offering insight into the origin of products.
