Sustainability in the supply chain has been high on the agenda in 2019. From tackling the global plastic problem to palm oil production and deforestation, consumers are becoming increasingly aware of how the products that they buy are affecting the planet, the environment and the people in it.This increased awareness has brought about the rise of the conscious consumer: those who demand more transparency from brands, and who seek proof of any claims of ethical and sustainable behaviour.
From a brand or retailer’s perspective, this brings new challenges. Despite drive and dedication to make sustainable changes and focussing on sourcing ethically, many are still in the dark about where to start.
