In 2012, our Board of Directors adopted four goals for 2020 that show what’s possible by pursuing economic viability, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship:
Goal 1: Make healthy eating accessible, tasty, and fun.
We will work with our owners and customers to promote practical and effortless solutions that will improve the way our community eats.
Goal 2: Drive the growth of local and sustainable foods
We will develop new suppliers, produce more local food ourselves, and provide co-op owners with tools to track their purchasing patterns. We will mobilize community resources to achieve ambitious goals for local and sustainable food sales.
Goal 3: Invigorate downtowns
We will make WSM stores even more vibrant and fun, and attract more people downtown. We will open new downtown stores at a similar pace to the three units we opened last decade.
Goal 4: Use net zero energy, create zero waste, and promote responsible packaging
We will dramatically reduce energy use and install commercial solar, take responsibility that all of our packaging can be reused or recycled, and keep our waste out of the landfill.
