Megan Paul writes for The Grocer on why green energy can be a 'money saver' for retailers rather than a 'money spender'

The retail industry accounts for 25% of global carbon emissions, which is unsurprising given that retail businesses need a consistent and reliable source of power throughout their operations.

However, the sector regularly receives heavy criticism for not doing enough to reduce its carbon footprint and improve sustainability credentials. Research continues to show that increasing numbers of consumers are willing to pay a premium for sustainable brands. And over 50% of consumers are willing to change their shopping habits to reduce environmental impact.

Megan Paul, Partner in our commercial team, argues in an article for retail sector magazine The Grocer that many of the initiatives implemented by other industries to reduce carbon emmissions - particularly in Scope 3 - seem to be missed opportunities in the retail world.

She goes on to explain why these sorts of initiatives, while often seen as 'money spenders' can actually turn into significant 'money savers' when implemented correctly.
