Why net zero is important for retail businesses
The UK government is committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2050. There is a growing expectation that customers and government regulations will require you to reduce your carbon footprint
As a retail business, there are a number of measures you can take to benefit your business as well as the environment.
Switching to electric delivery vans and introducing energy efficiency measures at your workplace can lead to significant savings on fuel and energy bills. By managing and recycling waste properly you can save money on landfill tax and waste disposal rates.
