Retail

Sustainable solutions for large, complex and multi-site retail organisations.

Taking the strain from the high street

Over the past few years, we’ve seen the retail sector consistently react to the mounting pressure from changing consumer habits, energy price crisis and supply chain issues. Whilst online retail boomed, business rates and energy costs rose impacting high street stores and out-of-town retailers’ efforts to decarbonise to meet net-zero targets.

Managing utilities and controlling costs is a real challenge for retailers with a large portfolio of sites. Managing multiple locations without a coherent strategy or specialist tools can lead to issues with billing, budgets, regulatory compliance, cost recovery and more.

In increasingly competitive sectors, operators need to do everything they can to win customers. Sustainability campaigns have proven popular in retail, where bans on single-use plastic bags and the increase in use of recycled materials have been almost universally welcomed by customers.

In the future, customers, employees and other key stakeholders will expect companies in these sectors to do even more to promote sustainability. An increasingly punitive compliance framework will also make it more important for businesses to monitor emissions, boost efficiency and cut energy consumption.
