The Impact of Environmental Sustainability

Business Challenge

Environmental sustainability is a trend that is here to stay. Whether it is product labeling requirements in Europe or CSR reporting requirements from brands and retailers in the US, the consumer product supply chain needs to globally embrace the green wave. As players in the supply chain - retailer, brand, agent, vendor, factory or mill - you will need to implement, communicate and meet these requirements. The world is going green; your customers and end users are also going green; all of which demands you demonstrate the environmental performance of your products.
