SPAR uses 14 tonnes less paper from this year

Once again, SPAR Hungary has taken a major step towards environmental awareness. The company uses digital solutions to reduce the paper-based administration required for the operation of its stores. This measure will save 14 tonnes of paper by 2023.

“Environmental awareness is an important principle for SPAR. With this aim, we strive to implement new solutions in almost all areas of our daily operations. One of these key areas is cutting paper use: we are also striving for digital solutions in our store network processes, and since 2019 we have been working continuously to minimise paper consumption in this area as well,” said Márk Maczelka, head of communications at SPAR Hungary.

The company’s latest initiative focuses on online solutions for administration. For example, the paper records of cleaning logs and refrigeration control sheets have been eliminated and replaced by digital data. As a result, almost 14 tonnes less paper will be used annually in 2023.

Under the SPAR sustainability programme, the SPAR Online shop has also recently turned green: the former printed delivery notes are now replaced with digital ones. This contributes to saving more than 3 tonnes of paper every year.
