The health of our planet is inextricably linked to the health of all people. We are committed to understanding the connection between our environmental impact and the health of our customers and communities, such as air pollution, water pollution, deforestation and climate change, and working to reduce those impacts.
With an enterprise footprint that includes more than 9,800 retail locations, 22 distribution centers, numerous field offices and a fleet of more than 2,500 delivery vehicles, we embed sustainability throughout our operations to minimize our environmental impact and increase cost savings.
Sustainable Products and Packaging
In addition to being the largest pharmacy health care provider in the U.S., we’re also one of the nation’s largest sources for convenient essentials in categories including food and beverage, beauty and personal care. Our customers are increasingly looking for products that safely and effectively deliver the same benefits they’re used to, with fewer ingredients of concern and, when possible, a lesser environmental impact.
Internal and External Engagement Around Our Sustainability Vision
Achieving sustainability requires collaboration. We have the ability to leverage our size and scale to increase awareness of key sustainability issues with colleagues, customers and business partners, driving our industry forward and developing meaningful partnerships with our key stakeholders.
