Sustainable shopping

With consumers becoming progressively more critical, the retail sector is one that understands this better than anyone else. A growing number of retailers highly value sustainability and take concrete measures to make their activities carbon-neutral. We go a step beyond this and actively contribute ideas about the retail of the future and how sustainability plays a role in this.

Consumers are growing more aware and demanding
The critical shopper
Consumers are eager to do their bit and do so by, for example, opting for sustainable shops. We support retailers in their efforts to innovate sustainably so that they can offer their customers what they want. A growing number of retailers are already taking concrete measures to make their activities carbon-neutral. We go a step beyond this and actively contribute ideas about the sustainable retail of the future. Here are just several of the potential projects we can help you with.
CO2 neutrality
Most retailers have a carbon-neutrality commitment. We help them live up to this pledge, with a greater focus on effective CO2 reduction in their own processes rather than on CO2 offset.
Future-oriented building
Your shop is your business card; it is the first impression a visitor is given, and it largely determines the customer experience. So, it is important to opt for sustainable innovations when choosing your building—whether it be new construction or renovation.
Healthy ventilation
The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly increased our awareness of the need for good ventilation in places where many people come together. That is why our designs for ventilation systems always factor in the minimal spread of viruses.
Innovative lighting
Lighting not only affects vision but also mood. Our innovative lighting approach incorporates light intensity at any time of the day, ensuring a pleasant environment and experience at all times.
Natural cooling
Cooling systems are an important cost item for fresh food distributors. Moreover, cooling systems are subject to strict environmental standards. We will assist you in your search for the right installations for natural cooling.
Sustainable habits
You will be amazed at how many of our daily habits can easily be made sustainable. Taking a closer look at what has become barely noticeable for your employees can lead to very interesting—and often simple—changes in the behaviour of your employees.
New service models
Looking at your current activities from a sustainability angle will often lead you to discover new, surprising revenue models with interesting added value for your clients.
Sustainable mobility
The way we travel affects the environment. That is why a growing number of customers will opt for hybrids or even electric vehicles and demand an infrastructure that allows them to recharge their vehicle.

Our approach


Our audits serve as the basis for mapping out the current situation and creating a plan of action to evolve towards the ideal future scenario.


The action plan is put into effect by bringing together a team tailored to each new challenge. All participants are challenged to give their very best at competitive conditions, and we negotiate quality assurance with all parties involved.


We are the go-to for all parties involved and report on the progress of the project, which guarantees the qualitative completion of each project.

The benefits of collaboration

Sustainable innovation is an important growth factor in the retail industry, with the critical consumers making ever-higher demands in terms of corporate social responsibility. In a world of ever-increasing sustainability standards, it is interesting to take a closer look at your activities and identify how sustainability can provide a better customer experience.

  • Additional revenue


In a world that seems to be running out of opportunities, it is particularly interesting to use sustainability to develop new solutions for your customers and to be of even better service to them.


  • A stronger image


Sustainable innovation will help strengthen the image of a company, brand or product in the long term. This long-term approach ensures that brands continue to take consistent steps, with their 'name' becoming ever more valuable to clients, consumers or employees.

  • Lower costs


Sustainability innovation has quick and effective implications for a company's cost structure. Thanks to a new approach to processes and raw materials, energy consumption will decrease, waste will be reduced, there will be less staff turnover and the tax burden will decrease.


  • Long-term compliance


It has become a given that governments will adopt increasingly stringent measures with regard to the footprint of companies.  However, clients and consumers will also impose ever-higher demands. Thanks to investments in sustainability, which already generate interesting benefits, you can ensure that your company remains relevant in the long term.
