A new web-based tool, Low Impact Shopfitting Tool (LIST), has been developed by BRE in partnership with DisplayPlan, FITCH and M&S to enable a sustainable solution to loose shopfitting display equipment. LIST allows retailers, designers and manufacturers to evaluate and compare the environmental impacts of shopfitting display materials and equipment from the initial design stage. This instigates consideration of the impact on the environment from the preliminary designs through the whole life-cycle of the shopfitting display equipment. LIST can be used to compare several designs of shopfitting equipment and determine whether one will have a lower environmental impact than another.
