At the yearly conference, a motion was put forward by the district council to help newsagents be more energy efficient. This would be carried out as part of the NFRN’s Shop in a Box and/or Shoplink schemes.
Shop in a Box is a shop development scheme run by the NFRN, while Shoplink gives members access to deals and offers on products and services. The federation has 16,000 members in total.
Over 96% of members voted in favour of the motion, which could see swathes of newsagents moving towards energy efficient lighting as soon as the federation identifies the most suitable technologies.
