FAMILY DOLLAR SUSTAINABILITY
Family Dollar values our customers, Team Members and the communities served by our stores. To that end, the information on this social responsibility webpage is designed to provide insight to the Company’s operations as it relates to environmental and social impact, as well as corporate stewardship.
For more than half a century, Family Dollar has been providing customers with value and convenience in easy-to-shop neighborhood locations. As we have grown to more than 8,000 stores and 11 distribution centers, we’ve never lost sight of what it means to be a good neighbor.
Providing value in the community goes beyond our everyday low prices. It also means ensuring that we operate our stores and distribution centers with honesty, integrity and respect and that we are good stewards of the environment.
EPA ENERGY STAR Partner
In 2010, we introduced a new lighting layout which helped reduce our lighting energy consumption by about 10% per store with only a minor light reduction on the sales floor. This system also helped reduced assembly and installation time.
Our lighting designs for new stores and renovated stores have implemented measures that reduce the light power density to a level that qualifies us for tax deductions from the Energy Policy Act of 2005 as well as energy efficiency rebates from numerous utilities.
