At Albertsons Companies — the parent company of Albertsons, Safeway and 18 other supermarket banners across the U.S. — environmental stewardship is paramount. The food and drug retailer is committed to integrating sustainable practices into everyday business. 

“Our corporate commitment to environmental stewardship helps guide improvements in our business operations that reflect the values and concerns of our customers and the communities we serve,” said Shane Dorcheus, EVP Retail Operations & President for the Southwest Division. 


“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with SRP and other local businesses on a large-scale renewable energy project that will benefit Arizona communities,” Dorcheus said.

The company expects to complete six more solar systems this year as the cost of solar becomes even more economical. This is in addition to Albertsons Companies’ 43 existing solar-powered systems nationwide.


As company leaders see it, sustainability is good for everybody — their customers, their employees, their communities and, of course, planet Earth. Albertsons Companies is committed to saving energy and water, reducing waste, recycling, composting, increasing the use of renewable low-carbon energy resources and identifying process improvements that help them protect the environment.
