Question: Why does a major grocery store chain need a “comprehensive policy addressing climate change”?
Answer: They don’t.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that one of the nations oldest and largest grocery firms, Kroger Inc., based in Cincinnati, OH rejected a shareholder proposal which called for the company to develop a comprehensive policy addressing climate change.
Having shopped at many a Kroger store myself, I’m glad I won’t be bombared with climate change messages while I shop. I really don’t need to know what the carbon footprint is on a can of soup or a head of lettuce.
Cincinnati-based Kroger (NYSE: KR) operates more than 2,400 supermarkets and multidepartment stores in 31 states.
