Falabella’s sustainability efforts in Chile and Peru
What: The Chilean retailer continues to optimize its sustainable strategy and confirms that it will supply 151 facilities in Chile and 93 in Peru with 100% renewable energy.
Why is it important: These contracts will begin during the first half of 2022 and will supply most of the demand at premises operated by Falabella Retail, Sodimac, Tottus, Ikea, Open Plaza and Mall Plaza.
The company highlights that this is one of the most important negotiations of electricity supply contracts within the year 2021 and involves the reduction of around 261,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.
It includes an electro-mobility agreement with Enel X in Chile, which involves setting up and operating charging centres for electric vehicles at stores, malls and distribution centres throughout the country. Customers and logistics operators will then be able to charge their vehicles at Falabella group premises.
