Operating as a socially responsible business is important for all business, and as a member-owned organization, it’s critical. We believe it’s important to factor in the impacts we have from an economic, social and environmental perspective.
Peninsula Co-op continues to look at opportunities to diversify. While a large majority of our business is in the petroleum industry, of which there remains a consistent market demand, we do take steps to contribute to the health of our environment where possible. Equally important, we have a responsibility to our members to remain financially strong, securing the future of the Co-op. Financial stability ensures we can continue to support the economy by hiring local talent; support local vendors whether it’s through facility operations or selling their products in our stores; and support the community. As a Co-op, a big part of our ethos and values is to be community minded – our commitment to give back, to support programs and services many of our friends and neighbours rely on, thereby enriching the communities where we all live, work and play.
