Shops to display environmental performance

In Industry News On

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is developing a scheme of energy certificates for retailers. Based on a building’s size and energy consumption, they will quantify energy consumption and allow comparisons with similar premises. Certificates will be displayed in shops encouraging retailers and staff to improve their performance and boosting awareness of energy efficiency among customers.
Kevin Hawkins, BRC director general, commented: “This move shows retailers are genuinely committed to reducing carbon emissions. An accepted system of, publicly displayed ratings will give the means and incentive to go further as well as educating customers and encouraging their own efforts.”

The BRC believes the pilot scheme could be extended to all retailers wanting to take part, regardless of size.
