The Professional Retail Store Maintenance Association (PRSM) released a white paper with a basic introduction on carbon management for retailers.
Introduction to The Practice of Carbon Management for Retailers offers background on climate change, climate-related policies at an international, national and local scale. The paper also explains benefits of practicing carbon management and first steps retailers can take to measure and manage their climate impact.
Examples of Canadian carbon management requirements are included, along with other countries. The white paper also includes the checklist, “Preparing for a Carbon Footprint,” which provides insight into the type of information facility managers need to calculate their company’s carbon footprint.
“Reducing carbon footprint is a major driver for retailers’ sustainability initiatives,” says PRSM CEO Bill Yanek. “This white paper is a great beginning for retail facility management professionals to implement carbon management programs for their own brands.”
