Over 90% of super e members now bring their own shopping bags*. Want to join them? Starting this month, City Super Group is introducing a new series of eco-friendly measures. In support of this year’s World Environment Day theme, “Beat Plastic Pollution”, on June 5 we proudly present a brand-new series of measures across the Group’s various brands, including city’super, LOG-ON, Little Mermaid and more, in a continuing effort to promote environmental conservation. They will be rolled out with the principle of “Saying No to Plastic” in mind, joining forces with the growing movement advocating a plastic-free lifestyle.*As of Oct 2022, 98% of super e members had not purchased a plastic bag during transactions in the past 12 months.
Starting June 5, 2023
Extra-thick Recycled Paper Shopping Bags to Replace Plastic Shopping Bags
In our ongoing effort towards becoming plastic-free, we will introduce a series of paper shopping bags, made of recycled paper and printed with soy ink (a process that does not produce atmospheric pollutants), in place of traditional plastic shopping bags. A portion of the proceeds generated from this measure will be donated to WWF-Hong Kong for conservation and education purposes.
LOG-ON paper shopping bags are available in various sizes, and these extra-thick paper bags can carry up to 8kg and be used repeatedly. Based on guidelines from the Environmental Protection Department and the type of goods in question, several brands in the Group will also introduce corresponding measures.
The launch of New ESG Website with Focus on Sustainable Development
“Say No to Plastic”, the new series of measures by City Super Group, is the first phase of the company’s commitment to advocating environmental protection and waste reduction at source: it’s part of a larger plan to promote sustainable development. As a trusted and caring brand, the Group continues to strive for these causes, with a new ESG website soon to be launched that will provide up-to-date information on its latest policies and community events in three major areas: the Environment, Social Responsibilities and Corporate Governance, with a particular focus on consumer health. The initiative is part of the Group’s contribution to a better society and brighter future.
