Retailers occupy a privileged position at the heart of local communities, but their contribution goes far beyond offering a wide range of quality products in a highly competitive market. Every year, many retailers make significant investments in helping to improve the communities they serve.

As well as being active in their localities, retailers understand their role as part of the global community, ensuring the products they sell are sustainably sourced, building relationships with producers and manufacturers in their supply chains and working hard to reduce their environmental impact.

We work with governments and NGOs to influence policies that encourage all the diverse kinds of retail to flourish and effectively contribute to local communities; that ensure a resilient and transparent supply chain delivering certainty for consumers; and that ensure that supply chains are recognised for respecting the needs to consumers and suppliers.
