Sustainability impacts every nation, company, and person around the world. So much so that, in 2015, the United Nations (UN) issued a call for action by all countries to work toward sustainable development. In response to this and as part of a global Sustainability at Retail initiative, Shop! worked collaboratively with its global affiliates to address these critical issues in this white paper.
The paper provides a roadmap for making changes and adopting processes that will help address important eco challenges worldwide. It covers the importance of sustainability from three perspectives: brands/retailers, designers, and suppliers. It also details the UN Sustainable Development Goals, their recommendations for the aforementioned groups, along with examples of how companies within those groups are addressing the goals.
Finally, the white paper includes both the POPAI France and POPAI UK & Ireland Eco-Standard initiatives and shows how companies have implemented these standards in their projects. But first, a little about the consumer. Download today!
