The venue’s offer is completed with the products and the elegant ambiance offered by Chocolada Sweetshop and Vanilla Coffee.

Ateliers Sans Frontières awards Carrefour Romania at the “Give IT” competition

ROMANIA, 2016-Jan-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — On 20 January, Carrefour Romania was presented with an award in the “Give IT” competition that is staged every year by Ateliers Sans Frontières. The purpose of this competition is to reward companies which decide to donate their old IT equipment so that it can be reused for educational projects and initiatives designed to help vulnerable people reintegrate into society throughout the country. This year, Carrefour has been ranked third on the list of companies which have decided to show evidence of their responsibilities and of the active roles that they play as social partners through concrete initiatives.

This year, Carrefour ranks third on the list of companies which have donated the most amount of electrical and electronic equipment waste to “Ateliers Sans Frontières”, thus helping to reduce waste and promote its re-use before it is recycled and destroyed. Most of the IT equipment donated by Carrefour Romania will be restored to its original condition and then given to schools and charities in underprivileged communities.

This equipment also creates jobs in the social reintegration workshop for underprivileged people.

ROMANIA, 2015-5-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — Green Group in collaboration with Carrefour Romania have inaugurated in the parking lots of Carrefour Colentina and Berceni one SIGUREC station, the smart system for collecting waste directly from consumers, based on reward. In Bucharest, SIGUREC has another three stations in the parking lots of Carrefour Băneasa, Militari and Vitantis.

SIGUREC is the most modern collection solution that currently exists in Romania, having an integrated automated system for waste collection and an intelligent software that registers each waste item entered. People can bring to SIGUREC over 10 types of recyclable materials, with the guarantee that they will all go directly to the recycling plants in Romania.

SIGUREC devices offer rewards for waste brought in by issuing shopping discount vouchers valid in Carrefour hypermarkets.

Moreover, SIGUREC collection stations enable users to actively support a number of social causes. Thus, those who bring waste to SIGUREC can choose to transfer the value of the voucher received to HOSPICE Casa Speranței organization, the most important organization in Romania that provides specialized care for people suffering from final-stages or life-limiting diseases.

The first station was inaugurated in 2013 in Buzău. In 2015, we will continue to implement the SIGUREC system as well as in the other cities where Carrefour has hypermarkets.

During 1 August and 31 December 2014, SIGUREC stations collected a total of over 1,000 tons of waste that have been sent directly to the recycling plants in Romania.

The waste quantities collected through the SIGUREC system in the last five months of 2014:
•    772,063 units of PET packaging, cans and glass
•    310,121 kg of waste electrical and electronic equipment
•    259,063 kg of paper/cardboard

Buzău is the champion city in terms of waste electrical and electronic equipment and waste paper/cardboard and aluminum recycling. Regarding PET and glass packaging, the station located in Carrefour Băneasa comes first in terms of collection.
