The front line of CSR
The world’s retailers are part of a major industry. In the US alone, the retail sector is estimated to include one million stores. Retailers are on the front line of corporate social responsibility and transparency, and play a significant role in sustainable production and consumption. An example of this is through choice influencing by making labelled products available and visible.
And, by focusing on the in-house environmental management of their facilities, transportation and logistics, they can directly reduce the environmental impacts from their operations.
Commitment to responsible third-party-verified sourcing is attractive to consumers and helps a brand to gain and maintain trust, according to research conducted by FSC/GlobeScan. This is important to our retail audience as consumer trust is among the most influential factors in consumer purchasing decisions and helps to create loyalty.
