Safeway selects Hara for help reducing carbon footprint


REDWOOD CITY, Calif. Safeway has selected Hara, a leading provider of environmental and energy management software, to help it identify and implement economic measures to reduce its energy usage and carbon footprint, Hara reported.

According to Hara, it will provide Safeway with an environmental and energy management solution that provides a centralized platform to collect, monitor and manage energy costs, greenhouse gas emissions, forecasting, modeling and market information across its stores, manufacturing distribution centers and fuel stations. Hara EEM will also help Safeway achieve a consolidated view of its companywide utility spending on an automated basis.

“We have a long history of reducing our energy costs through innovative supply arrangements and implementation of energy efficiency projects. We believe that by implementing the right tools, we will be well positioned to make significant progress towards our goals,” said Joe Pettus, senior vice president of fuel and energy at Safeway. “Hara adds value by giving us not only reliable insight into the size and makeup of our energy usage and carbon footprint, but also a solid roadmap for achieving further cost reductions and better carbon management.”
