Net Zero for retail park units

“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.

Why Clearworld?

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.


Clearworld supported the client with a campaign to drive down Carbon primarily to ensure their stores operate to maximum efficiency in all areas. The challenge was to create solutions that can be implemented quickly and cost effectively to ensure best possible outcome for their CSR and most importantly CO2 targets. Initially based on a small trial, the very encouraging results achieved energy savings in excess of 25% which contributed to circa. 12 tonnes of CO2 being saved.

Clearworld were selected to assist with a nationwide lighting improvement program to enhance the shopping experience. The remit was to mobilise a project across a variety of brands/locations within a short time frame and without any disruption to the day-to-day operation. Every site had a scoping out survey to evaluate the current set up and operational procedure and group wide savings of c. 29% have been achieved with a ROI of 1.56 years.
