El Segundo, Calif., Tesco’s new U.S. division, Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, announced Wednesday it is joining the California Climate Action Registry, California's only official registry for greenhouse gas emissions reduction projects.
"Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market is committed to tracking and reducing its carbon footprint," said CEO Tim Mason. "We have already designed our stores and trucks to be more efficiently saving energy and reducing fuel consumption. It is a natural next step for us to measure our impact and look for ways to continually reduce our impact on the environment."
The registry, created by the California legislature in 2000, helps companies and organizations throughout the United States track, publicly record and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The results are certified by independent approved third-party auditors to ensure compliance with registry protocols and standardizations across participants and sectors within California. The registry has been widely recognized as the gold standard for publicly reporting greenhouse gases.
