The Time for Sustainability in Retail Is Now

Coresight Research

What's Inside

Employees, investors and consumers expect sustainability to be addressed at the companies for which they work, in which they invest and by the brands from which they buy. We discuss the development of sustainability in retail and present Coresight Research’s EnCORE framework, which is designed to help retailers and brands frame their approach to sustainability.

This report includes insights and discussion around the following five components of our EnCORE framework:

  • Environmental engagement—including selected environmental regulations and standards for US businesses
  • Circular models—with examples of recycling and resale programs from Eileen Fisher, Uniqlo, VF Corp. and more.
  • Optimized operations—covering sustainability in resource consumption as outlined by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, including of water, energy and fuel.
  • Responsible supply chains—with a focus on environmental impact
  • Excellence in reporting and communicating—to build consumer trust and loyalty and become a champion of sustainability in retail

We summarize key actions that brands and retailers can take to implement sustainable business practices.
