For decades, emerging climate-related trends—rising air pollution, melting glaciers and even the epidemic spread of disease—have led to increased environmental awareness among both the general population and organizations around the world.
Retail companies have a prominent role to play, along with significant opportunities to act responsibly and sustainably, as they sit at the center of a complex ecosystem that includes various suppliers, service providers, financial institutions and consumers.
Each link in the chain offers opportunities to drive sustainability and grow revenue.
Sustainability-conscious consumers are a highly interesting target group for retailers since they are typically in the middle of life (both at work and in their private lives), live predominantly in urban areas and have a medium to high shopping budget.
They’re also focusing on waste avoidance and energy savings through the use of renewable energy, which can lead to significant cost-saving effects. Cost savings of 20%, for example, have the same effect as a 5% increase in revenue.
A holistic approach to driving change can ensure long-term success.
Efficient checkout solutions can underpin sustainability initiatives, especially when they’re designed with sustainability at the forefront throughout every phase of the product lifecycle—from product planning, development, production, logistics, operation, service and maintenance to the return and recycling of the POS. The new DN SeriesTM BEETLE is an all-in-one yet modular system that combines the benefits of modularity, serviceability, optimized TCO and sustainability.
