5.3 Raising customer and consumer awareness

Pagination within this Memory's chapter

5.3.1 Campaigns activities and initiatives

The direct involvement of consumers allows us to combine efforts to increase both the economic impact and the repercussion of initiatives in support of environmental protection and social progress. It is as part of this belief that, with the Fundación Eroski, we carry out a wide range of activities that raise customers' awareness and provide them with information at our points of sale.

Just a little of your shopping means a lot 2005-2006. Together with the Spanish Food Bank Federation (FESBAL)

In 2005, we signed an agreement with the Foundation for the Sustainable Development of the Balearic Islands to distribute the "Green Card" amongst our customers, an initiative that combines shopping discounts with protection of the islands' natural heritage. In addition to training and informing, we provide our customers to put their ideals into practise.

Grupo Eroski's membership of the ECOTIC integrated management system allows our customers to dispose of waste electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE), with the guarantee that they will be handed over to authorised waste management concerns who will separate reusable and recyclable components.

We also have the Plan Renove domestic appliance replacement scheme, which has led to the renewal of more than 90,000 such devices. Growing consumer concern for energy savings has been boosted by aid granted by Spain's Ministry for Industry, Tourism and Trade and autonomous community governments. Consumers thinking of purchasing a domestic appliance and wishing to take advantage of this aid can request information at Eroski hypermarkets, where they will be informed of the implementation of the aid and the steps to be taken to obtain it.

With the Fundación Eroski, we carry out a wide range of activities to inform customers and raise their awareness of environmental protection and social progress.

In practice, replacing domestic appliances in the home can be highly advantageous. If a family were to replace all its Class D (conventional) appliances for new, Class A (efficient) ones, their electricity bill would be cut by 12% a year. Washing machines save not only electricity, but water: a Class A machine would save more than 35,000 litres of water over the course of its useful life.

Also, thanks to our customers, the reusable shopping bag continues to help the environment. Hundreds of them have joined this ecological trend and take their shopping home in one, for the modest price of 15 eurocents. With it attractive, modern, colourful design, it saves up to 15 traditional bags. The bags is also made of recyclable materials and contributes to caring for our natural environment. If the bag breaks or becomes unusable, all that has to be done is to ask for a new one at Eroski hypermarkets and it will be replaced, free of charge and as often as is required.
