The Future of Ethics & Corporate Sustainability in Retail

March 14, 2018 to August 21, 2018

This engagement seeks to deepen understanding on the infusion of ethics into the retail environment.

Over the course of the upcoming months, a group of hand-selected experts in retail, ethics, sustainability, technology, and advocacy will explore emerging trends across the lifecycle of retail:

- Starting upstream at product creation, looking at how sustainable materials and respect for human rights impact for supply chain workers impact cost structures; 
- Through environmental and social impacts, considering renewable energy and water use, recycling, and waste elimination as well as living wages and community engagement; 
- All the way to consumer responses and political activism.

The overarching goal is to gain insights into the future direction of retail as a driver of ethical outcomes.
