Kaufland pays a special attention to the environmental protection, therefore this hypermarket also benefits from an environmentally-friendly air-conditioning system – a modern complex system that recovers heat from the refrigerators and saves natural resources, with environmental responsibility. While during the winter the installation heats the store, it reverses the process during the summer, in order to provide the store with pleasant ambient temperatures according to the public health standards. Also, all the refrigerating devices in the store are Freon free and use only CO2, thus protecting the environment and the natural resources.

The new store also brings a significant support to the local community, from several points of view. It is one of the hypermarkets with the highest number of employees, and we are glad that this way we manage to create new jobs. At the same time, this store also provides an assortment focused on Romanian products, more than 50% of all the products, and by supporting their purchase, we encourage local economy” stated Valer Hancas, Communication & Corporate Affairs Manager at Kaufland Romania.
