The Company has adopted a number of practices that highlight its commitment to environmental and social responsibility that seek to promote practical sustainability initiatives in the operation of our business and to deliver on the Company’s purpose to make the lives of its guests and communities better each day. As part of that commitment, the Company has established an internal ESG “working group,” with representatives from numerous cross-functional teams, including procurement/sustainability, transportation/distribution, human resources, operations, marketing and legal, to maintain a focus on these important matters.

Environmental

LED Lighting: Substantially all of Casey’s stores use LED lighting for interior lights, parking lot lights, exterior canopies, cooler/freezer lights and façade sign lighting, resulting in significant energy savings.

Construction Efficiencies: Stores are designed and built to meet applicable Model Energy Codes, including but not limited to energy efficient HVAC, refrigeration, exhaust and water-heating equipment and energy efficient windows and doors.

Water Reduction: Implemented a number of water-usage initiatives, including reduced and rain-sensing irrigation practices and low-flow faucet aerators, restroom equipment and other hardware.

Ethanol Blended Fuel and Biodiesel: Ethanol blended fuel is available at all stores (E10 – all stores, E15 – 254 stores, and E85 – 226 stores), with higher blend sales exceeding three million gallons per month. In addition, biodiesel is available at over 1,000 stores, and over half the diesel fuel sold is blended with 5% or more biodiesel.

Recycling: Comprehensive recycling program throughout our stores and distribution centers, including cardboard/packaging, pallets, metal, appliances and light bulbs. In addition, our Store Support Center and related facilities have implemented a number of paper-reduction initiatives and related paper recycling programs.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations: Installed electric vehicle charging stations at over 20 stores, with plans to install more during the 2021 fiscal year.

Community Solar Gardens: In certain states, participate in “community solar gardens,” in which the Company commits to an amount of the solar garden that offsets anywhere from 25%-100% of energy usage at participating stores.

Transportation: Have reduced the emissions impact of our transportation fleet through a focus on mileage/route efficiencies, delivery schedules, vehicle idling and more fuel efficient vehicles.

Social

Casey’s Charities: Each year, the Company provides financial support to a large number of local charities, schools and other organizations. In 2019 alone, the Company and Casey’s Charities directly donated over $2M in monetary and in-kind donations to dozens of deserving groups. In addition, our combined guest/store contribution campaigns led to almost $9M in charitable donations.

Cash for Classrooms: The Company’s new loyalty/rewards program has a unique feature which allows guests’ rewards points to be donated to a school of their choice. Since just December of 2019, donations have been made to 2,436 schools across the Company’s territory.

Partnership with Feeding America: Includes financial support, in-kind food donations and future in-store fund-raising campaigns to support 52 local food banks across Casey’s 16-state territory.

Team Member Environment: Implemented robust team member practices and policies, including comprehensive anti-harassment/discrimination and safety training and policies, robust health/welfare benefits for full- and part-time team members and a widely disseminated “ethics” hotline.

Casey’s Healthy Directions Wellness Program: Formal program designed to provide wellness programs that encourage, educate and equip our team members and their families to live their lives in a manner that positively impacts their personal health and well-being.

COVID-19 Enhancements: From the outset of the COVID-19 crisis, have provided expanded leave benefits and supplemental pay and bonuses to front-line and other team members. In addition, to increase the safety of our team members and guests, installed Plexiglas shields at all cash registers, provided personal protective equipment, enhanced cleaning procedures inside our stores and at the pumps, implemented health checks at our distribution centers, established social distancing at our stores, and implemented contact-less delivery options.

Convenience Stores Against Trafficking (CSAT): Partner with CSAT to raise awareness against human trafficking and provide a collective “neighborhood watch” and safe haven for victims with other convenience stores. Includes store postings with safety information and hotline numbers and related training for team members.

Cage-Free Egg Commitment: Casey’s has committed to work with its suppliers to source 100% of its eggs from cage-free hens by 2025, based upon available supply and affordability to its customers.
