About retail companies

Retail companies are involved in the sale of goods to the public, and form the final link in the supply chain from producers to consumers. 

Retailers can face a variety of EHS and ESG challenges which need to be managed carefully, along with more traditional strategic decisions concerning retail operations such as product, price, place and promotion.

The challenge

The nature of physical retail operations combined with public interaction means that retailers face a variety of unique EHS challenges and ESG considerations, which may include:

Employee safety

Retail employees’ safety may be at risk from store and facilities robberies, and other violent crime incidents. 

Employee ergonomics

Employees may face physical challenges in the performance of their duties, such as standing for long periods, frequently bending over during shelf packing for example, and moving heavy retail items around the store.

Hygiene issues

Mitigating the transmission of viruses in-store. 

Permits and compliance

Retail outlets may face a variety of compliance regulations pertaining to their operations and employee health and safety, working conditions, etc.

Training

Job training and emergency preparedness such as fire drills, may be required to meet mandated employee health and safety requirements.

ESG considerations

Retailers need to manage their ESG outputs in much the same way that other industries do. 

Environmental: Retail operations may have significant impacts on their surrounding environments, such as land use, water consumption, noise and traffic, delivery vehicle emissions, etc.
