How to become a greener retailer and boost profits

A handy guide for retailers developed in association with Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber of Commerce


As more and more people live greener lives, they are looking to spend their money with retailers who support their lifestyle and share their same values.


A recent study showed that over a third of consumers are now buying from brands based on their social and environmental impact. Representing an estimated €966 billion opportunity for businesses who take action now.


Going green isn’t just about protecting the environment – it makes good business sense too. Reducing waste and increasing energy efficiency will help satisfy your customers’ demands and enhance your competitive position. And that’s great. However, set against a backdrop of rising energy, water and waste costs, saving resources also means you will save money and boost profits.


It's worth noting that resource efficiency savings go straight to your bottom line. Imagine how much would be added to your business’s bottom line if you were to reduce your energy bill by 24%, which is an easily achievable outcome for most small and medium enterprises we support.


The good news is that there are many ‘quick win’ actions in this guide, developed in association with Midlothian and East Lothian Chambers of Commerce, that retailers can take at little or no cost to help them become more sustainable and boost profits.
