Demonstrating a long term dedication to sustainability and the environment, this is the Company's fourth LEED® certification.

Over 97% of all office equipment and appliances in building are Energy Star rated;
20% of all building materials made with recycled content;
75% of all construction waste materials were properly recycled and/or reused;
Energy reduction and lighting power reduction of 30% and 18%, respectively;

Water use reduction of over 35% using motion-activated sensors, flow controls and rainwater recovery cistern.
Additionally, the facility is strategically located to support customers throughout the Southwest including Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas and Louisiana. By transferring distribution routes to its Lancaster facility, UNFI has been able reduce greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions, improve service levels and enhance overall operating efficiencies in serving these customers.

"UNFI remains focused on sustainability and strives to integrate green strategies into the design of its buildings," said Steve Spinner, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are extremely proud to have achieved LEED® Gold certification at our Lancaster distribution center, and this is another example of UNFI's deep commitment to environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient design."

LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally-recognized green building certification system that promotes sustainable building and development practices through a rating system administered by the USGBC, the nation's leading evaluator of environmentally sustainable buildings.

UNFI partnered with ARCO Design/Build, Inc. of Atlanta, GA to provide sustainable design and site planning for the distribution center and Philadelphia-based ReVision Architecture served as the Company's LEED® consultant.

In 2009, UNFI's Ridgefield, Washington distribution center became the first refrigerated distribution center to be recognized by the USGBC with LEED® Gold certification. The Company also received LEED® Gold certification on its York, Pennsylvania distribution center and LEED® Silver certification on its Providence, Rhode Island corporate headquarters in 2010.
