Climate transition planning

Insights for retailers

Consumer & Retail

Climate change is no longer a distant concern—it is a pressing reality that retailers must address. To meet the demands of environmentally conscious consumers and investors, retailers need to prioritize sustainability efforts. Our thought leadership piece on climate transition planning for the retail industry provides strategies to help retailers navigate this transition successfully.

Why act now?

  • Understand the need for urgent action to reduce emissions and achieve net-zero targets by 2050.
  • Recognize the growing importance of sustainability among younger consumers, who are willing to spend more on sustainable products.
  • Learn how the values of millennials and Gen Z are shaping investment strategies, and why companies need to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability to attract investors.

Key considerations:

  • Minimize energy usage and reduce operating costs through initiatives like renewable energy adoption, efficient lighting, and eco-friendly packaging.
  • Set ambitious yet achievable emission-reduction targets aligned with organizational goals.
  • Integrate decarbonization efforts and climate risk assessment into a climate transition strategy to ensure business resiliency.
  • Create a four-phase roadmap that includes measuring and assessing emissions, strategizing and designing climate risk mitigation, mobilizing and transforming the organization, and implementing actionable steps.
