CCSA members work to do whatever they can to safeguard our environment.
This is another important aspect of our Responsible Community Retailing mission that reaches to the core of every community in which our members trade.
We recognize that in many instances the local C-Store is a key influence on everyday community life, serving customers young and old. If our members set the standards and examples of good citizenship, we believe that this message over time will work into all parts of everyday life; in homes, schools, the workplace and other community areas.
You will find at the majority of CCSA members, various initiatives at work to improve the environment for everyone. These range from recycling programs to making sure that areas immediately adjacent to any C-Store or gasoline outlet are kept as free as possible of garbage and that customers can visibly see and use receptacles to collect trash.
CCSA members work to provide clean facilities and ensure all hygiene standards are met
CCSA members also work hard to reduce energy wherever possible but not to risk or reduce store security or safety for customers or employees.
They are working to evaluate and consider various ‘green’ alternatives that help improve the local environment. These include such things as plantings where possible to improve the aesthetics of the facilities and utilization of solar and alternative energy power.
