In 2014 Europris launched an energy savings programme designed by Entro. Entro monitors 200 stores using the Optima Energi energy monitoring system. The main objective of the energy saving programme is to enable the chain to reduce energy consumption by 9 per cent in the period 2014 to 2016. This saving will be achieved through optimisation of operations in the stores. The main elements of the programme are active energy monitoring and operational inspection reviews.
After the first four months Europris had managed to reduce its temperature-adjusted consumption by five per cent.
