Sustainable logistics, sustainable retail

The future is now: revolutionising retail and logistics with green solutions and innovative technology

Sustainability goals for retail and logistics – the path to a low-carbon future

Germany has the target of reducing 543 million tonnes of CO2 by 2030. Future-ready leaders know that the reduction of carbon emissions also impacts the profitability of logistics providers in the retail industry. Compliance with sustainability goals can be achieved by embracing digital solutions targeted at achieving transparency in supply chains, reducing emissions, and providing data analysis for better decisions. 

Embracing sustainability brings new era for retail

Sustainability in retail and logistics is not limited to policies and ethics discussions. It has a huge economic impact. Through initiatives like low-carbon mobility management, advanced energy management for stores, and efficient EV charging, the sector is adopting eco-friendly practices. These changes not only contribute to a healthier planet but also offer long-term cost savings and enhanced customer experiences.

Remain compliant with the Supply Chain Transparency Suite

The Supply Chain Transparency Suite is an in-house, out-of-the-box solution developed by T-Systems, based on ServiceNow. It helps you to assess supply chains from direct as well as indirect suppliers and to compile the data for reporting to the BAFA (Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control). The suite enables our clients to remain compliant with the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG), mandated from January 2023. The data is combined and analysed to not only fulfil legal obligations but also to create time to optimise supply chains in terms of human rights.

Low-carbon mobility management for stores

Low-carbon mobility management is an innovative strategy that focuses on reducing carbon emissions associated with transportation and logistics in an eco-conscious market. This approach encompasses a range of practices, from utilising electric vehicles (EVs) for deliveries to optimising delivery routes for fuel efficiency. Additionally, integrating digital tools for real-time tracking and data analysis enables stores to make informed decisions that balance efficiency with environmental responsibility.

Energy management in retail stores as a business practice

Energy management in retail stores is a crucial component of modern, sustainable business practices. This approach focuses on optimising energy use to reduce costs and minimise environmental impact. By implementing advanced energy management systems, retail stores can monitor and control their energy consumption more effectively. Embracing energy management not only aligns with global environmental targets but also enhances the store’s market competitiveness by reducing overheads and appealing to eco-conscious consumers.
