How RENEW™ Improves Community Support

Contributing to our community support is easy! All you need to do is fill up at any of the participating 7-Eleven stores located in British Columbia. The RENEW™ program automatically calculates your estimated tailpipe emissions and invests in certified carbon offset projects. Most noteworthy projects include planting trees, solar power generation, landfill gas capture, and more, resulting in up to 30% offset emissions.

The best part is, you don’t have to do anything differently. Just pump your fuel as you normally would, and know that every time you fill up at 7-Eleven, the RENEW™ program offsets your emissions and plants trees in order to support our communities!

Step 1:

7-Eleven RENEW™ is a program specifically designed to help foster community support and positively impact the environment. We accomplish this by offsetting your tailpipe emissions. In addition, we go the extra mile to plant trees locally with TreeCanada and other non-profit organizations in British Columbia and beyond!

While you fill up at 7-Eleven, YOU are making a direct and positive impact on your community – it’s a difference you can breathe! That’s why we say “Pump Here. Plant Trees.” As a result, you help us provide better community support.

7-Eleven Corporate Sustainability

2025 Goal: Offset our energy footprint in stores and offices by 20% using a baseline of 2015.

 

Offsetting our impact on the environment is a major focus for 7‑Eleven. Therefore we’ve taken big steps by strategically investing in several energy and sustainability programs that increase efficiency and reduce waste and resource consumption.

We’ve implemented several innovative measures, like LED lighting, energy management systems and high-efficiency HVAC units. As a result, 7‑Eleven has offset annual CO2 emissions by an estimated 300,000 metric tons and decreased annual electricity use by 21%.

LED lighting - a bright idea in energy conversation

7‑Eleven’s LED lighting program is part of our energy-efficient store design standard. LED lights are energy-efficient, reduce the use of hazardous materials and comply with local regulations to reduce light pollution. Plus, they improve the quality of lighting, while supporting a safer store and a better shopping experience for customers. Therefore this program is a big contributor to our overall CO2 offset goals.

Conserving a natural resource

7‑Eleven understands that efficient use of water helps reduce the demands on our water supply and preserve an essential natural resource. To reduce water consumption, we’re installing low-flow aerator faucets as part of our standard energy-efficient design plan for all new stores.

Managing the energy we use

7‑Eleven has strengthened our energy management strategy by implementing energy management systems (EMS) in stores. They’re used to monitor, control and optimize the performance of HVAC and refrigeration equipment. EMS enables remote control of HVAC and other energy-consuming equipment, and generates real-time data used to perform self-diagnostic and optimization routines to offset energy consumption and manage costs.
