The launch of the new ‘eco’ Dia outlet comes after the success of another such format in 2008. Carrefour said the new outlet will see CO2 emissions being reduced by 25%, and the measures will be gradually rolled out to all outlets. The main features of the new concept are more efficient frozen cabinets, an optimised lighting system and the use of a better and less polluting gas for its air conditioning/heating system.
Meanwhile, the group has also opened two new outlets in the country, in the towns of La Roca and Stiges. The ‘Carrefour Express’ outlet in La Roca is the first of the group’s convenience stores in Spain to be opened inside a fuel service station, while the Stiges outlet is under the ‘Carrefour Market’ banner.
