We serve around 3 million customers every week, and work with thousands of local food producers and suppliers throughout New Zealand. Last year Countdown announced 20 sustainability commitments out towhich include goals to reduce our carbon footprint, move towards zero food waste and helping to support a circular flourish boutique business plan through recyclable and reusable packaging.
We are working to reduce our carbon emissions to 10 per cent below levels bydespite projected growth. This comes on the back of keeping carbon emissions to be within 1.
Continuing to drive down carbon emission levels by will be challenging, however we have already seen a nine per cent decrease in carbon emissions compared to FY16 despite growing as a business over this time with five new stores. We have continued to roll out LED lighting in our stores, which on average sees energy savings of around 40 per cent.
More than of our stores now have LED lighting in the retail areas, with the remaining stores planned as they undergo refurbishments. Our most recent store refurbishment at Countdown Greenlane in Auckland had a focus on reducing energy use, with the latest energy efficient fittings, LED lighting, and a hybrid refrigeration, dual path heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
We are expecting a 40 per cent energy saving as a result. The store has also installed two benches for customer seating made out of 21, recycled plastic bags and other soft plastics. We also operate Drinkworks, which markets and distributes premium beer and cider in Australia, and have a direct interest in 20 licensed premises in Auckland through Barworks Hospitality Group, a joint venture with JAG Hospitality Group.

DB produces almostlitres of beer by-product each year, and disposes of aroundlitres of excess slurry, which is surplus to allocation for primary industry production of Marmite or stock feed.

Over the past year, tonnes of DB Export Beer Bottle Sand has been produced for a range of practical purposes, including for construction and roading, DIY projects, pipe bedding, golf bunkers and sports field drainage. DB Export Beer Bottle Sand provides an environmentally friendly alternative to beach-derived sand, which is a non-renewable resource.
It also creates value from waste glass, which cannot be recycled for glass production due to contamination or co-mingling. Through DB Export Beer Bottle Sand, DB is elevating the importance of recycling and the negative impacts of sand dredging on beaches to a mainstream audience.
Our social media campaign also received 55 million views andshares. Therefore, the next best option is to repurpose it into other uses, such as a sand-substitute.
A standalone unit, it was dedicated to heating water in the sterilisation CIP supply tank which was, until then, done through electricity only. Throughout the year we used a combination of electric and solar capacity at the site and in we made further changes to save more electricity, including halving the volume of water heated from 30 to 15 Hls, sterilising post shift instead of pre shift and filling the tank with thermal heated water.
The unit has consistently reduced our electricity consumption from 2. Focus on continuous improvement Ina major part of our focus around reducing CO2 emissions was on our transportation and logistics in and around our production sites, on both a large and small scale.
Through continuous improvement principles we targeted specific areas to optimise our truck movements highlighting opportunities where we could reduce fuel usage or alter our delivery systems and locations to reduce our CO2 emissions.
We identified that the usage of our offsite storage facilities, where we store overflow product, could be optimised at certain times of year. By working hard on our forecasting we were able to ensure the amount of product held in offsite storage facilities was minimised.
The effect of this was significantly reducing the movements of trucks between these sites and less time on the roads. We also began the development of an onsite warehouse extension at our largest Waitemata site, with the long-term aim of completely eliminating the need for additional truck movement to offsite storage.
Further, we conducted a full analysis of our production schedule across all operational sites.The Work at Home Woman. Hi, I'm Holly. I help women and moms find remote jobs, careers, and home-based businesses that feed their souls.
