How Retailers Can Reduce Their Carbon Footprint with Click and Collect

Lots of people talk about the weather nowadays — not so much out of politeness, but rather out of concern. Record-breaking temperatures, heat waves, floods, and other extreme phenomena are felt by Australians everywhere. There is no denying that climate change is affecting not only our day-to-day lives and well-being, but the business environment as well.

The good news is that the retail industry is one of the most powerful changemakers and trendsetters in our society. It can have a significant positive impact through the way it operates and what it chooses to promote. Even small changes in shipping policies, like offering a click-and-collect service, can have a terrific impact, without compromising on efficiency or quality — quite the contrary!

In this article, we will focus on the — often overlooked — potential of click and collect to lower the carbon footprint of your shop. If you own an e-commerce business or have an online shopping feature that complements your brick-and-mortar location, then this article is for you.
