“Big box” retail, as we call it, usually located in sites on the edge of town with typical footprints of 5,000-15,000sq.ft, was designed to be a more efficient way of selling goods to consumers than the traditional high street, with its tight confines, parking restrictions etc. However, there is still considerable scope for brands with multiple retail park sites to set ambitious Net Zero targets and realise significant savings in consumption, emissions and expenditure across their estate.
We have worked with several national brands with retail park assets throughout the UK and are familiar with the opportunities to implement carbon management and energy reduction solutions. For some national operations we have reduced carbon emissions by as much as 50%. Each business will have its own requirements but through our simple four-step process we can identify and implement a bespoke Net Zero strategy to meet your sustainability and cost-savings goals.
