Reducing our impact on the environment is a major focus for 7-Eleven. We’ve taken big steps by strategically investing in several Energy and Environmental Initiatives that increase efficiency and reduce waste and consumption of resources. Our goal is to reduce CO2 emissions from stores by 50% by 2030.

Energy and Environmental Initiatives

7-Eleven has always innovated to make things easier for customers, and that includes giving them alternative fuel options. Through 7Charge, the company’s EV charging network and app, 7‑Eleven is focused on providing EV drivers access to a seamless charging and payment experience across the 7Charge network. By providing a reliable and fast-charging* option for electric vehicles at stores along select highway corridors and in metropolitan areas, 7Charge is once again redefining convenience.

7‑Eleven will continue to increase its number of fast-charging options available to customers by expanding the 7Charge network, along with continuing to utilize third-party fast-charging network options to maximize our charging offering throughout the United States and Canada. The 7Charge app is currently available for download across Apple and Android devices.

Approximately 26 percent of all the electricity consumed by 7-Eleven® stores in both the U.S. and Canada during FY2022 came from renewable sources, including wind and solar.

To enhance our role as a positive steward of the environment, 7‑Eleven is a member of the Retail Industry Leaders Association’s Retail Sustainability Initiative (RSI). RSI is an industrywide educational forum for the largest U.S. retailers. It brings its members together to share leading practices, identify future trends, benchmark with peers, and collaborate on common industry environmental social governance challenges.

Beginning in 2021, 7‑Eleven joined the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA). REBA is a membership association bringing together over 200 stakeholders from the commercial and industrial sector, nonprofit organizations, and energy and energy-service providers. Their vision and mission is to create a resilient, zero-carbon energy system where every organization has a viable, expedient, and cost-effective pathway to renewable energy.

In addition to renewable energy initiatives, the company implements energy efficiency measures in stores to make important progress toward reducing emissions. Initiatives include:


  • LED lighting
  • Energy Efficient HVAC
  • Energy Management Systems


  • Low E windows
  • Occupancy sensors
  • Photocells/Daylight
  • Harvesting Structural Insulated Panels (SIP)
