Optimized planning for a sustainable future 

For years, RELEX has helped retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers reduce waste through forecast and inventory optimization. 

Reducing our collective impact on the environment is at the core of our business

Food waste is a major environmental issue, responsible for 8-10% of yearly global greenhouse gas emissions. We are proud that our food retail and wholesale customers are typically able to cut their food waste by 10-40% through implementation of our platform. Across our entire food retail and grocery customer base, a conservative estimate of 15% reduction in food waste translates to a whopping reduction of 280 million kilograms of reduced food waste in 2023. This equals roughly 950,000 tons of CO2 equivalents. 
 
We also want to practice what we preach – and we’re proud to say that from 2021 onwards we have been offsetting our yearly emissions through high-quality carbon offset projects.

How does RELEX help?

Food waste reduction

By optimizing end-to-end inventory management for fresh food products, we’re cutting food waste by up to 40%. Across our customer base, that means we prevent 280M+ kilograms of food waste each year.

CO2 savings

Stopping 280M+ kgs of food waste is the same as stopping 950,000+ tons of CO2 equivalents. Put another way, our annual carbon handprint has the same impact as planting 32 million trees to remove CO2 from the air.

RELEX environmental impact

When examining the difference between our carbon footprint (3800 tons in 2022) and our estimated carbon handprint (950 000 tons in 2023), it’s easy to see that we have an overwhelmingly positive environmental impact. This is something we are very proud of!
