Challenge
Reach a higher level of eco-efficiency in our stores
Action
Throughout the last few years, we have been developing significant and consistent efforts to strengthen the eco-efficiency in our stores. One such example is the remodelling project of the Continente hypermarket in Matosinhos. The group’s first store, inaugurated in 1985, was remodelled in 2016, to reflect the "hyper concept of the future”. The project incorporated a clear concern regarding the optimisation of water and energy consumption, as well as the reusing and recycling of materials.
Impact
  • Attainment of the Platinum Certification from LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. There are currently only six buildings in the world with the same level of certification, the Continente store in Matosinhos is the largest of them all.
  • The LEED certification process consists of the evaluation of around 60 sustainability indicators, that as a whole, lead to the allocation of a maximum of 110 points – the Continente store in Matosinhos obtained 80 out of 110 points – that can then translate into four levels of certification – Certification, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
