Environmental Sustainability

Because the future is important to us

Changing how we power up

This building uses 15,511 kWh of solar energy annually, all generated by our rooftop panels.

The parking lot’s two Level 2 EV charging stations support electric vehicles.

Heat Reclamation

Heat is constantly being reclaimed from our refrigerators to heat water and the warehouse area – reducing our use of natural gas.

Bees & Pollination

Freson Bros. has partnered with Good Morning Honey to raise bees on the rooftop. Fresh honey, wax and more.

Landfill Diversion

Cooking oil used in the Kitchens and Mother Dough Bread Co. avoids landfills and instead is cleaned and converted for industrial reuse.

Most of our Produce and Deli food waste becomes compost

LED Lighting

LED lighting throughout the store reduces our overall power consumption.

Gardening on our Rooftop

The roof of the Edmonton building is home to a 2,000 sq ft. garden with composting bins that keep us at net zero waste.
