    Tens of thousands of batteries to replace

    A big supermarket has more than 20,000 shelf labels. That's a lot of batteries to replace! This comes with some costs; the cost of the batteries, the man-hours needed, the environmental impact, and the perceived environmental ignorance by customers reflecting on tens of thousands of disposable batteries wasted regularly.

    Sustainable retail

    Sustainability is an essential megatrend in retail. Digitalization is used to optimize logistics and visibility of short dates to minimize food waste and much more.

    One of the forerunners in sustainable retail is Swedish IKEA. In 2021 they made the interesting decision to minimize the sale and use of disposable batteries. They are ahead of planned regulations regarding disposable batteries and will surely see many other retailers with a sustainability profile follow suit.
