How to internalise your company’s sustainability strategy in the retail ecosystem
In the last five years the collective voices of multiple stakeholders advocating a more proactive approach to sustainability has grown. Today, employees, investors and consumers expect sustainability to be addressed at the companies they work for, invest in and the brands they buy. But sustainability is different things to different people and navigating the sheer volume of issues is daunting. The Coresight Research - IBM sustainability strategy simplifies it all for retail by narrowing the focus to environmental sustainability or the impact of a company’s operations across the entire supply chain, from component sourcing, water consumption and management to pollution and waste disposal—all with an eye to reducing costs and enhancing profits. The focus is Profit and Planet, not either, or.
Coresight Research developed the EnCORE framework to help retailers and brands frame their approach to environmental sustainability, to provide a guide to systematically thinking about environmental sustainability and considering the key criteria most helpful to internalise a sustainability strategy in the retail ecosystem.Deborah Weinswig, Founder and CEO of Coresight will set out how this can be implemented by retailers.
