The opportunity for companies

Retail companies with an ethical proposition are some of the fastest growing companies as consumers increasingly use their purchasing power to support brands that align with their values. Retail has influence over the supply chain for incentivising environmental practices.


For retail to exercise their agency in addressing sustainability challenges requires them to develop a critical path involving setting commitments, gaining understanding, and implementing improvements.

"Lush Cosmetics is working with Pilio to develop a global energy monitoring platform for us to manage and report across 900+ sites. The Pilio dashboards make it visual and easy to understand where our biggest energy impacts are, and working with the Pilio team we are able to identify sites where we can achieve energy savings or minimise wastage. Pilio will play an integral part in our long-term emissions reporting, enabling consistency across the globe."
