Sustainable Business Consulting

Project : Retailer


Retailer Sustainability Assessment:

• GHG Inventory
• Vision & Goal Setting
• Opportunities for Cost Savings & Environmental Improvement

This retailer began receiving external pressure from Wal-Mart and Safeway to report on their energy, GHG and sustainability performance, but could not respond to the information requested until it had formalized a sustainability program that included a baseline assessment.

SBC helped the retailer develop a three-year sustainability strategy, which included:

  • Sustainability Assessment with GHG Inventory and Risk Analysis
  • Materiality Assessment to determine internal and external focus points
  • Opportunity & Cost Saving Analysis
  • Sustainable Supply Chain Procurement Guidelines

The company identified over $1.3M potential savings from environmental initiatives and was able to proactively respond to sustainability questionnaires and shift the external pressure to a business driver.

The project was able to scale by implementing initiatives aligned with cost savings, engaging employees and enhancing brand value to customers & key shareholders.
