Excess inventory creates tremendous amounts of harmful waste each year.

Sustainability leaders have made significant strides in helping organizations identify and implement sustainable solutions throughout the supply chain. However, excess inventory continues to be a major pain point due to reliance on outdated systems and processes.

The result is harmful waste ending up in landfills and oceans, and harmful emissions being released into the atmosphere.

How INTURN Is Helping Brands Achieve Zero Waste

We’re committed to helping brands act and measure meaningful progress against the following sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Responsible Consumption and Production

INTURN's inventory solutions enable brands to identify, manage, and sell goods that might otherwise be destroyed or discarded. With INTURN’s business intelligence, brands can report on tangible success metrics that demonstrate how they’re making a direct impact on sustainability efforts.

Climate Action

Carbon emissions are released into the atmosphere when inventory is destroyed or discarded, contributing to diminished air quality. INTURN helps brands reduce carbon emissions by moving unsold inventory into other channels more efficiently. With more efficient truckload management, less carbon emissions are generated from transportation of excess goods.

Life Below Water

Many brands are forced to discard consumer packaged goods when they expire, which results in harmful plastic waste negatively impacting the ocean’s ecosystems. INTURN helps brands reduce the volume of harmful plastics in oceans by enabling brands to identify products at risk of becoming slow-moving or obsolete and take action earlier in the product lifecycle.

We’ve worked with brands and partners to make a significant impact on revitalizing the environment—and this is just the beginning.

Sustainability Blog Post

Slow moving and excess inventory causes headaches for brands across all industries. Brands are typically faced with two options: 1) selling their products at a large discount in order to get it out the door as quickly as possible, or 2) discarding or destroying the goods, which results in zero profit and numerous harmful effects on the environment.

Read our latest blog post to learn why optimizing excess inventory is key to meeting your brand’s sustainability goals.
