Many business energy customers in the retail sector could be looking at ways to improve the efficiency of their operations as part of a bid to go green.
A new report by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) stated there is a growing recognition that reducing waste and energy usage makes sense and delivers value for customers in addition to the environmental benefits.
It observed the sector is on target to meet a commitment to cut energy-related emissions by 25 per cent by 2013, compared with 2005 levels.
By the end of last year, businesses had already cut 20 per cent from their 2005 carbon output.
Head of environment at the BRC Bob Gordon said: "Despite current economic difficulties, retailers are continuing to work with their suppliers to meet tougher sustainability goals."
Meanwhile, the Scottish government has given its backing to a new web portal that aims to offer enterprises advice on how they can become more sustainable through better use of energy.
The Scottish Energy and Resource Efficiency Service integrates support currently offered by the Carbon Trust, Energy Saving Trust and Zero Waste Scotland into a single site.
