WASHINGTON — The National Retail Federation here has introduced a carbon calculator for its members developed by Verisae, Minneapolis. The NRF carbon calculator is accessible for free to NRF members at www.nrf.com.
“The NRF is very excited to be making Verisae’s carbon calculator available to our member organizations,” said Daniel Butler, vice president of retail operations for the National Retail Federation. “We’re confident that retailers will find this to be a very valuable tool to help further their understanding of sustainability issues.”
Using the NRF carbon calculator, retailers can measure their organization’s carbon footprint, establish a baseline, and develop the knowledge necessary to focus their sustainability efforts. The tool helps members measure their progress against the retail industry baseline.
Last month, the Food Marketing Institute made the Verisaw carbon calculator available free to its members at www.fmi.org.
