Human beings have bad impacts on the environment. As the population increases the harm that we create increases as well.
Each step we take from sourcing to packaging to waste management impacts the environment. Companies that care about the environment are seeking a solution to this problem. Some retailers consider the circularity of their operations.
Those companies want to demonstrate their sustainability commitments to the environment and consumers. They are well aware of the fact that renewable energy is becoming cheaper and more available under many circumstances. According to some studies, renewables are now the cheapest form of new electricity generation for two-thirds of the world’s population.
There are many companies that have embraced renewable energy ideas from different countries and markets. One of them is in the UK, Lola’s cupcakes. They announced that they launched the first retail store that is unplugged from the electricity grid. They are relying on solar panels on the roof and provide energy for their fridges, lights and till systems.
There are also universal companies such as the Estee Lauder Companies, Sephora, Google, Apple, Starbucks, Microsoft, Intel, Samsung, P&G, Intel, IKEA, DHL, Unilever, HM and Netflix who are one of those companies using renewable energy.
In August 2019, Gap Inc. signed a 12-year VPPA with Enel Green Power which will provide enough energy to power over 1,500 of the company’s global retail stores. Gap Inc. anticipates achieving its 2020 target of lowering greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to a 2015 baseline with the aid of our alliance.
Future is in renewable energy and wise businesses have already invested in that. From the small companies to bigger ones, choosing green energy always pays you back.
Remember! Green is more affordable today.
