• FMCG & Retail

  • The FMCG sector (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) is a sector taking many actions towards a more sustainable operating model. Currently, this sector is facing many criticisms due to its overuse of plastic packaging and polluting transportation in their supply chain.


    Due to the globalized economy and the underlying rising competition, FMCG actors are pressured to lower their prices down, which can shift their sustainable objectives away, such as reducing their supply chain carbon footprint. The main challenge is thus to create an optimized operational efficiency without compromising the current environmental actions they are taking while remaining competitive. Therefore, striving for operational excellence and an optimized supply chain model is crucial for our clients. 


    Moreover, end customers want more and more transparency from the sector concerning the origin, margin and carbon footprint of the product they purchase. Packaging, transportation, waste management, transparency, green sourcing are key issues in operations for which our consultants have been developing effective solutions in automation, operational excellence, waste reduction, circular economy and greener finance. 


    Have a look at our projects in the FMCG sector.


    Retailers have a big role to play in the transition towards a greener and more sustainable mass-consumption. Retailers have more and more responsibilities in consumer behavioral shift towards better and consumption and more sustainable choices, essentially with education tools, incentive programmes and effective communication.


    On a separate note, measuring retailer’s current carbon emission on every scope (1, 2 and 3) had became a common approach. Data collection and analysis are key towards assessing the current retailer GHG (Green House Gas) emissions. Consequently, a clear action plan and road map can be implemented towards a net-zero carbon strategy. Intysify works closely with internal experts and external partners to support our clients in having a clear view and goals of their actual carbon footprint.



    Change derives from various labeling initiatives and government regulations related to the retail sector. Radical and sustainable improvements need to be implemented, following a clear action plan such as waste reduction policy, better energy sourcing and raw materials. For that matter, you can find here more information about plastic waste reduction projects we performed in the retail sector.
