Consumer Goods & Retail

With 88% of consumers now saying they want the brands they engage with to help them live more environmentally friendly lives, sustainability in consumer goods and retail has never been more important. With a huge consumer base, the retail industry is uniquely positioned to help customers slash their carbon footprint and make a valuable sustainability difference across their entire value chains.

Retail Sustainability Overview

As a result of this change in consumer expectation, alongside pressure coming from regulators, retailers are increasingly directing their strategy and investments toward sustainable and responsible growth. They are re-evaluating the sustainability credentials of their products and of their overall brand, to resonate with the wishes of an increasingly wide range of consumers.

Still, questions remain about how retailers can combine operational excellence with social and environmental responsibility. SLR supports clients in understanding and defining their most material ESG issues, and provides the delivery support needed to turn plans into action, ensuring that together we are Making Sustainability Happen.
