Stakeholders

A successful retail sustainability program should establish performance goals that are well communicated to consumers, employees, executives, and shareholders. These goals are used to signal the company's commitment, stimulate innovation, and create financial value while protecting the environment, promoting the company's values, and enhancing the company's brand reputation. Stakeholders from within and outside of the company can be engaged to foster new ideas, partnerships, and resources.

Over three-quarters of the total environmental impact from products on retail shelves occurs deep in the supply chain, including greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, manufacturing, transport, and refrigeration; the destruction of forests to grow crops and raise animals for food, apparel, and personal care products; chemical exposures and discharges from agricultural practices and the manufacture and dying of textiles; biodiversity losses from removing forests and large-scale agriculture; and human rights issues and labor practices.​

Sustainability

A company’s sustainability program helps ensure its products have a positive impact on people and the environment—from the raw materials it uses, practices at its suppliers’ sites, modes of transportation, use by consumers, and eventual disposal. Sustainability programs echo with consumers’ demand as well. Ninety-three percent of global consumers expect more of the brands they use to support social and environmental issues. Markers have the power to unleash consumer demand by helping to link benefits for consumers with the sustainability topics their brands prioritize.

A company’s sustainability program helps ensure its products, services, and operations have a positive impact on people and the environment—from the raw materials it uses, practices at its suppliers’ sites, modes of transportation, the use of its products by consumers, and the eventual disposal of waste or spent product. Today, employees expect this of the companies they work for. Fifty percent of U.S. employees say they will not work for a company that does not have strong sustainability commitments and seventy percent want an opportunity to contribute to those commitments.​
