Retail group to launch green retailing progress report

The British Retail Consortium is to launch a report into green retail in January 2014.

A Better Retailing Climate: Driving Resource Efficiency will be launched by Justin Tomlinson MP, Defra minister Owen Paterson MP, and Ian Cheshire, chairman of the British Retail Consortium.

The British Retail Consortium’s A Better Retailing Climate initiative is designed for retailers wishing to improve the environmental sustainability of their businesses. 

The new report, to be launched at the event, will mark out the sector’s progress against sustainability targets and demonstrate "the leadership role the sector has in improving resource efficiency while reducing environmental impact".

The event will also outline the next phase of commitments which set out the ambitions of the sector to deliver enhanced action in environmental sustainability for the future.
