7-Eleven Canada works to help communities stay active and green.
7-Eleven Inc. and Vancouver Bike Share (aka Mobi by Shaw Go) announced an agreement that recognizes 7-Eleven Canada as a Community Sponsor of Vancouver’s public bike share system. The agreement helps both organizations serve the community by promoting active living, healthy eating, and environmental responsibility.
“We found a perfect match with Mobi, dedicated to meeting our Vancouver customer needs of convenience and around-the-clock service, while promoting shared values of community, green living, and health and wellness,” said Doug Rosencrans, vice-president and general manager of 7-Eleven Canada. “Community is essential to our business, and we’re happy to work with companies like Vancouver Bike Share, dedicated to improving the quality of life in Vancouver.”
The 13 participating 7-Eleven locations in the Mobi by Shaw Go service area are located near 150 bike docking stations in-and-around downtown Vancouver, making the stores a convenient pit stop for riders looking to fuel up on a cool beverage or a healthy snack.
“We are thrilled to welcome 7-Eleven Canada as a Community Sponsor this summer 2018. In addition to the synergies that both 7-Eleven and Mobi by Shaw Go share – in terms of convenient access 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year – 7-Eleven’s commitment to sustainability directly aligns with our core values. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead,” said Mia Kohout, general manager and director of Vancouver Bike Share Inc.
“Our customers demand innovation, quality and value from the products we offer, but they’re also expecting more from the 7-Eleven Canada brand,” said Rosencrans. “Collaborating with organizations like Mobi helps us to enhance our role as positive environmental stewards.”
Installation of LED lighting programs and state-of the-art in-store energy management systems are helping 7-Eleven, Inc. reach its energy reduction targets of 20 percent by 2025. Since 2015, 7-Eleven reduced annual electricity use by 21 per cent and lowered emissions by an estimated 300,000 metric tons. The Mobi by Shaw Go program is another opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint in the communities 7-Eleven serves.
