Sustainability whitepapers for retailers launched

by | Mar 1, 2023 | News | 0 comments

Spring and Autumn Fair has partnered with global education hub Products of Change to create a set of five whitepapers to assist retailers and brands with their journey to operating a more sustainable, ethical, and regenerative business as part of its Power of One® campaign.

The first whitepaper, titled ‘Pathway to Sustainability’, showcases how to set business ambitions through the structure of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This is followed by a further four whitepapers including a dive into the Green Claims Code with ‘Navigating The Green Claims Code and Avoiding Greenwashing’; insight on our generation of sustainable shoppers in ‘Consumer Trends’, and the necessary policies, mandates, and frameworks to be aware of in ‘Legislation’.

Looking at the “inefficient, wasteful, consumptive, and extractive global economy that currently exists”, the ‘Circular Economy’ whitepaper explores the ‘cash is king’ economic model and outlines new strategies not reliant on finite resources.

The aim of the whitepapers is to continue the show’s ‘Power of One’ activity by providing businesses with the tools to build action, and together reduce the collective impact over the next few years across industry to meet 2030 targets. The whitepapers are now available to download at Pathway to Sustainability – Spring Fair 2023.

The next show, Autumn Fair takes place from the 3 – 6 September 2023.
