CASE STUDY: An agreement with the Ministry of the Environment

We at Eroski support compliance with the objectives of the Kyoto Accord by means of the recent signing of an agreement with the Spanish Ministry of the Environment, in which we undertake to reduce CO2 emissions from our facilities and our distribution and transport mechanisms, and to share the result of Green Transport Initiatives with other agreement signatory firms.

We support compliance with the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol and undertake to reduce CO2 emissions from facilities, distribution and transportation.

This agreement forms part of an initiative whereby sectors such as transport and the retail trade, not included in the Act, undertake to work together to achieve the agreement's objectives.

With this agreement, we make a commitment to carrying out specific activities aimed at reducing the demand for energy in our facilities from air conditioning, lighting and the supply of sanitary hot water, to introduce a percentage of biodiesel in our fleet's fuel supplies, to promote efficient driving and to study transport plans for employees with a view to cutting their emissions.

WWF/Adena shall be in charge of coordinating the working group made up of representatives of the signatory companies and the agreement monitoring commission, in addition to reviewing compliance with what has been agreed and disseminating the measures and results via its network.
