(3BL Media) June 7, 2012 - Delhaize Group, the Belgian international food retailer presents its fifth Sustainability Progress Report. The report reflects on the Group’s sustainability performance over the period 2009-2011 and confirms its long term commitment to sustainability. This is reinforced by its membership of The Sustainability Consortium, the independent group of organizations working to develop tools to improve the sustainability of consumer goods.

Delhaize Group’s 2011 sustainability report gives a short overview of the Group’s activities and key learnings over 2009-2011. A special focus is put on last year’s performance for each of the Group’s strategic sustainability areas of Products, People and Planet. This is the second report in which the Group moved to limited assurance for a selected number of indicators. It plans to gradually move towards external assurance on all sustainable indicators.

The report is only available online. The many links throughout it give the opportunity to access additional information:

Key achievements in 2011 include:

  • The introduction of two new healthy products private brand ranges: Delhaize Kids (Belgium),  NutriLife (Greece) 
  • A 6% drop in greenhouse gas emissions from product transport, compared to 2010
  • A reduction of 2.6 million kilometers traveled by trucks to our company-operated stores
  • Better resource efficiency by taking recycling food waste to the next level, resulting in 7 307 tonnes recycled at Delhaize America and 5 916 tonnes recycled at Delhaize Belgium

Delhaize Group is taking continued steps toward advancing its sustainability strategy in line with its importance in the ‘New Game Plan’, the Group’s strategy. Embedding a holistic approach to sustainability in the Group’s way of doing business will be central to translating its continued commitment to sustainability into accelerating performance. The next steps in the Group’s journey will be defined by its 2020 sustainability strategy, to be announced in more detail later this year.
