Campaigns

Influencing the economic and policy environment and driving change across retail

The BRC’s purpose is to make a positive difference to the retail industry and the customers it serves, today and in the future 

The single biggest issue facing the retail industry today is the impact of covid-19. The pandemic has accelerated the transformation of the industry and the factors driving it – technology changing how people shop, increasing costs and slow growth in consumer spending. 

Beyond Covid, we campaign on a range of issues to ensure the industry thrives through this period of transformation. These focus either on issues that are top of mind for retailers today, or on longer-term structural change programmes that require cross-industry collaboration to increase momentum and drive change.

The BRC gives us an opportunity to benchmark and keep abreast with our retail colleagues, provides easy access to government policy makers, and collates an ‘industry’ view, which can then have influence and impact.

Marks & Spencer

Public policy is impacting on the retail industry on many fronts – without BRC membership it would not be possible for us to maintain awareness and influence the outcome.

Boots

Even when we only have limited influence on legal/regulatory changes, the early warning of change and ongoing updates from the BRC mean that we are able to plan our response with the maximum possible window.
