Online sales: It’s not only competition from Amazon – many retailers are seeing an increase in online sales from their own sites.
New store models: Less foot traffic in stores leads to closures or smaller store footprints and larger distribution centers for fulfillment. As retailers transition to new store models, portfolios become more disparate.
Regulations: From plastic bag bans to fines for hazardous waste, retailers are constantly adjusting operations to accommodate national, state or local regulations and avoid significant fines.
Stakeholder expectations: Customers, employees and shareholders are demanding more transparency into sustainable business practices and a reduction in energy, water, waste and carbon.
With hundreds, or even thousands, of facilities, multi-site retailers face big challenges gathering and managing the data that provides insight into cost and consumption across energy, water, waste and telecom. However, this data provides a foundation for holistic resource management to control consumption and costs. It’s also a critical element for incorporating sustainability into operations portfolio-wide.
ENGIE Insight has deep experience working with retailers of all sizes. We collect and manage millions of data points across millions of invoices, then extract insights that help our clients develop sustainable resource management strategies.
“Seeing how much we were saving through this service, we decided to look into some of the other products that ENGIE Insight provided. That’s when we started exploring sustainability and other cost-cutting services.”
– Shirley Granado, Director of Strategic Cost Control, GameStop
