Greenpeace ranked Hy-Vee No. 2 out of the 22 largest supermarket chains in the U.S. for its sustainability efforts in its 2018 Carting Away the Oceans (CATO) report.
Hy-Vee was listed as one of the top two retailers in the report, finishing in the “best” category and taking the lead in the “initiatives and transparency” categories.
Hy-Vee was praised by Greenpeace for its efforts to address illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing through political advocacy, and participation in industry and NGO-led conversations to identify solutions.
Greenpeace also congratulated Hy-Vee on its Responsible Choice canned skipjack and albacore tuna products, which are produced exclusively with tuna caught using environmentally friendly methods.
