THE RETAIL INDUSTRY IS TAKING ACTION TO BUILD A BETTER, MORE PROSPEROUS AND SUSTAINABLE WORLD
Better Retail Better World is mobilising the retail industry to meet some of the biggest global challenges of the coming decades highlighted by the UN, including modern slavery and decent work, sustainable economic growth, inequalities, climate change and responsible consumption and production.
Using the widely recognised United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, clear, transparent and measurable goals developed with businesses and campaigners are at the heart of the initiative.
Put simply, this action will mean further safeguards against people falling into the modern slavery trap by paying to get a job, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation and waste sent to landfill and more support for people from underrepresented demographics to progress in employment.
You can see which retailers have signed up so far and track progress on this campaign hub.
