Aldi adds doors to fridges to reduce energy consumption

Aldi has announced that it will save the equivalent of over 2,000 tonnes of carbon emissions a year by installing fridge doors as standard in its new and newly refurbished stores.

The change will enable each of the supermarket’s shops  to reduce their energy consumption by approximately 20%, equivalent to a carbon emissions saving of up to 20 tonnes per store each year.

Mary Dunn, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “We are always looking for new ways to minimise our carbon footprint, which is why all our stores already use 100% renewable electricity, and our new stores also utilise natural refrigerants and feature efficient LED lighting.

“Introducing fridge doors is another step on that journey to reduce our energy consumption and we hope that customers enjoy the new, more sustainable shopping experience.”

Carbon neutral since January 2019, Aldi has already reduced its carbon footprint by more than 55% since 2012 through a range of sustainability initiatives, including the use of solar panels, switching to 100% green electricity and investing in a greener fleet.
