Aiming to be a carbon neutral retail chain by 2015: Woodland

There have been some environmental friendly initiatives made by Woodland, a footwear and apparel retailer. What they have come up with is to be a carbon neutral retail chain. They have already tied up with a consultancy firm that calculates the carbon that is emitted by their current 350 stores.

The company that they have tied up to is the NextGen. This company has been helping businesses to measure, manage and lessen the carbon emissions of their business and also for them to save more energy in the process. They are aiming that by the year 2015, they will have their stores become carbon neutral. This is according to the statement of their Managing Director Harkirat Singh.

By that year, the company might have around 500 stores already. There are a lot of ways that the NextGen was able to calculate the  carbon emitted by their stores and to name some we have carbon emissions from electricity used at stores, the use of diesel by generators and also the fuel burnt by the staff for commuting.
