Casey's General Stores is continually working towards building more sustainable stores to lessen our impact on the environment, and to build safer stores for our employees, customers and the communities we serve.
There are over 20 different projects within the new construction program. Some initiatives include the LED light rollout, water saving practices, and improving HVAC units and refrigeration systems. These new building practices are projected to save each store location around $7,500 annually.
In 2016, Casey's began a four-year rollout to convert all stores to LED lighting in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint. This project is projected to save energy consumption by over 50 percent, which is equal to the energy used by 2.6 homes annually per store.
Along with positively impacting our environment, this project also positively impacts our communities. With better, brighter lighting, it is our hope that our customers feel safer when frequenting our stores.
Casey's General Stores has partnered with PepsiCo since August of 2014 to introduce a beverage recycling program for our customers in select areas. Since the program began, Casey's customers have recycled over 91,500 lbs. or 1,842,000 units of plastic and aluminum products.
Right now, this program runs in the Tulsa, Kansas City, Fargo, and Joplin areas, with 567 bins located across 133 stores.
Casey's General Stores employees are one of our Company's most valuable assets and their productivity is critical to our ongoing success. With this in mind, we strive to provide benefits and programs that will assist them and their families to seek quality care and engage in programs to maintain or improve their overall health. After all, leading a healthy lifestyle is important to living a satisfying personal life, as well as sustaining productivity on the job.
One of the ways in which Casey's encourages our employees on their journey to improved health is through the Casey's Healthy Directions Wellness Program. This program is designed to provide wellness programs that will encourage, educate and equip our employees and their families to live out their lives in a manner that positively impacts their personal health and well-being.
