Retailers can increase sales and customer loyalty by promoting the energy-saving and environmental benefits associated with ENERGY STAR certified products.
In the ENERGY STAR Partnership Agreement (PDF, 231 KB), retailers make a number of commitments as outlined in the program requirements, including to stock and promote ENERGY STAR products; to feature ENERGY STAR certified products online and to train sales staff about the value of ENERGY STAR.
Retailers can use the ENERGY STAR Scope 3 Use of Sold Products Analysis Tool V1.2 to benchmark and project corporate Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions associated with the use of sold products. This tool allows retailers to quantify emissions associated with current sales of ENERGY STAR products and forecast reductions in emissions based on increases in sales of ENERGY STAR products. With over 70 categories, this tool can help retailers of any size pinpoint the types and quantities of ENERGY STAR products that will bring them closer to meeting or beating their corporate carbon emission goals.
