As a result of energy-saving measures introduced by Spar Hungary and the modernization of its stores, the store chain's greenhouse gas emissions were reduced by 49% by 2021 compared to 2017 levels, the supermarket chain told the state news agency MTI on Monday.
The company said that during the renovation of the stores, fluorescent lighting fixtures were replaced with LED lamps, and this technology is used even if the entire building is not being modernized, but only its electrical system.
In 2018, Spar Hungary switched to new refrigeration technologies that are more environmentally friendly, more efficient and more economical to operate in the long term. Outdated store portals are replaced with modern types with good thermal insulation properties, and where justified, thermal insulation is carried out when replacing the waterproofing of roofs and façade insulation is also applied.
For each investment, the company will assess the possibility of effectively implementing a solar system to help meet the electrical needs of the unit, taking into account the building's specificities. Electric car charging stations are continuously being installed at stores with parking facilities, with 168 such stations set up across the country so far, Spar said.
Spar Hungary Trade Ltd. achieved a turnover of HUF 791.8 billion last year, an increase of 7.2% compared to the same period last year. Its network includes more than 600 company-operated and franchised stores and employs around 14,500 people.
