Retail operations and supply chains are dependent on healthy environments and communities across the world. However, there are growing concerns over the pressures facing people and our planet. Retailers are challenged to solve these issues, but these are often complex problems that require collaborative approaches with a range of actors. The CSR Community provides the platform for retailers to work together, often with NGOs and governments, and lead the drive for positive change.
BRC’s Better Retail Better World campaign commits the retail industry to build a fairer, more sustainable economy in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. One of the critical goals determined by us and our stakeholders is Climate Action.
In the lead up to COP26, leading retailers want to galvanise collaborative efforts and showcase industry-wide support to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The BRC Climate Action Roadmap is the framework to guide the industry to net zero.
