The volatility of the retail market can make long-term facility-related decisions hard to commit to. Lease concerns, shared infrastructure and thin operating budgets often put increased efficiency and energy management at the wayside.
However, knowing the following is important: Retail companies spend approximately $20 billion on energy each year. Just a 10% reduction in energy costs for the average full-line discount retailer can boost net profit margins by as much as 1.55% and increase sales per square foot by $25.*
