Superstore Goes Green

German retail and trading giant Metro officially launched its first global green store in Dongguan on September 6. Metro’s Wanjiang Store is the first one in the country that is built to the standards of the China Green Building Label and LEED Gold. It is estimated to reduce its annual energy consumption by 50 percent. “The green renovation of the Dongguan Wanjiang Store is our new endeavor in the field of energy conservation and environment protection, aiming to promote long-term social sustainability,” said Jeroen de Groot, President of Metro China.
