RENEW™ is a carbon emissions offset program that 7-Eleven® has launched in the US that is now coming to Canada! It is dedicated to supporting the Vancouver and greater British Columbia communities.
You will now be able to offset your emissions by up to 30% by simply purchasing the same high-quality fuel at 7-Eleven stores. The RENEW program will offset your tailpipe emissions through investing in local, regional, and globally certified offset projects to automatically sequester carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. We are also taking the program a step further and working with our friends at Tree Canada to plant trees! Our goal is to plant at least 10,000 trees over the next year.
“As the convenience retail leader, we’re uniquely positioned to promote sustainability by bringing
innovative programs like RENEW to market,” said Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven President and Chief Executive Officer. “This program, coupled with our 2025 corporate social responsibility targets, furthers our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint, and offers customers a way to make a positive impact on the environment and their local communities.”
Did you know RENEW, our carbon emissions offset program, is unlike any other clean transportation offering or program? That’s because RENEW doesn’t require any new software, fuel, vehicles, hardware or equipment! You, as a 7-Eleven customer, will simply purchase the same fuel as you always do! RENEW will do the heavy lifting to automatically calculate your tailpipe emissions and invest in carbon offset projects to offset and offset tailpipe emissions in the atmosphere.
We don’t stop there! As part of the RENEW program, we will not only plant trees with Tree Canada but also participate in volunteer projects! Check out our volunteer page if you’re interested in getting dirty with us!
We are launching RENEW in Canada on Wednesday, September 26th at 1PM at 7-Eleven in New Westminister, BC. The first 50 attendees will receive a free tree sapling!
