SUSTAINABILITY IN RETAIL AWARD

We are pleased to announce the first edition of Sustainability in Retail Award winners are: Ikea in category non Food Retailer, and Kaufland in category Food Retailer.

Why sustainability for the retail industry?

Sustainable growth is the responsibility of the retail industry in regard to products, employees, the environment and the community.

By implementing the strategy of supporting sustainable development, retailers take such activities as investing in new technologies, establishing cooperation with reliable suppliers and looking for better and better solutions.

The focus on sustainable growth helps not only achieve ethical benefits, but also tangible results such as improving efficiency, reducing operational risk or increasing competitive advantage by the retailers.
