Since the rise of the “green revolution” more than a decade ago, convenience retailers have increasingly developed and incorporated business goals and KPIs that focus on sustainability into their strategic plans. Today, managing energy costs and continued awareness of the environment drive successful sustainability programs and practices at convenience stores, and NACS resources provide retailers with information they can use to enhance their sustainability goals.
This robust resource highlights where retailers can take credit for initiatives that are doing well and identifies opportunities to do more. Every business is on a different level of their sustainability journey, and we encourage retailers to use this Playbook as a guide for advancing the areas most relevant to your business today and consider how other areas could transform your business in the future.
