Leaders in Sustainability
We are currently the number one retailer in the country in
terms of number of solar installations with 133. Each
location generates approximately 15-20% of the energy
needed for the store. Collectively, It is enough energy to
power 3800 single family homes for a year.
Walgreens has
established a
department dedicated
to sustainability for
the entire company.
We are testing a wind turbine for
store use at our Waxahachie
Distribution Center.
We were the first
chain retailer to
install a geothermal
energy system in
our Oak Park store.
It reduces our
energy usage for
heating and cooling
by 46%.
Last year Walgreens recycled 69,000,000
pounds of cardboard and 1,200,000
pounds of shrink-wrap.
