Greening Retail: Maximising Resource Efficiencies in the Retail Sector

"Resource Efficiency for the Retail Sector"

A GreenBusiness and Environmental Protection Agency publication, proudly supported by Retail Ireland

Published: March 2014

GreenBusiness, in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency, has prepared a useful set of guidelines dedicated to helping retail businesses reduce their costs, better manage their waste and limit their environmental footprint. The guidelines are warmly supported by Retail Ireland.

The guidelines provide Irish retailers with the information, guidance and tips needed to reduce business costs by making small changes to how resources are managed, thereby also enhancing the green credentials of the retail industry.

The guide is aimed at all retailers, from large corporate chains to small independent stores, and is an invaluable resource in advising businesses how to reduce their energy, water and waste bills.

You can download a copy of the guidelines and a helpful accompanying wall chart below.
