Sustainability & supply chain transparency – digital magazine

Sustainability & supply chain transparency – digital magazine

Consumers are keenly aware of sustainability issues and are making purchasing decisions based not only on product quality, but also how a company embraces global conservation and applies sustainability initiatives across brand portfolios.

What began as increased interest in simpler labels has evolved into consumer preference for greener products sustainably manufactured by companies prioritizing environmental and social responsibility. Currently, consumers are willing to pay an average of 30 percent more for ethically produced goods. A growing global population—along with concerns ranging from food waste and water supply to climate change—makes sustainable sourcing along the supply chain a mandate, and not just an altruistic goal.
