Truck to rail: Reducing the carbon footprint

Earth Day is quickly approaching and as you know, here at Giant, our commitment to the environment is embedded in our DNA. Did you know that in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we’ve made some changes in our supply chain to utilize trains where possible instead of diesel trucks to move food from producers to our shelves? Last year alone, our move from trucks to trains helped save 2,059 metric tons of carbon emissions! This meant that there were 607 fewer long-haul trucks on the road, saving over 211,913 gallons of diesel fuel.

This Earth Day, pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Remember, growing greener isn’t just for Earth Day, it’s a year-round commitment. At Giant we care for the environment and our local communities every day.
