In Italy it is the second largest national distributor, with a 2014 turnover of 5.262 billion euro, over 20,000 employees and 1,152 stores.
For some time Carrefour Italy has been engaged in a process of sustainable development, which consists of taking initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of its activities.
To this end the policy of retrofitting facilities in existing stores, with particular focus on air conditioning, is aimed at reducing local CO2 emissions and improving energy performance, thus reducing running costs.
