Optimal retail location and CO2 emissions

Kenneth Carling, Johan Håkansson () and Niklas Rudholm

Abstract: In this paper, the p-median model is used to find the location of retail stores that minimizes CO2 emissions from consumer travel. The optimal location is then compared with the existing retail location, and the excess CO2 emissions compared with the optimal solution is calculated. The results show that by using the environmentally optimal location, CO2 emissions from consumer travel could be reduced by 22 per cent.

Keywords: Firm location; spatial distribution of firms; p-median model; emission reduction; (follow links to similar papers)
