The renovated facilities will also include other environmentally friendly solutions, such as energy-saving LED lighting. Depending on the location, it is also planned to replace the refrigerating furniture and cooling installation with an ecological one, which allows the use of waste heat to heat stores, which allows to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
