Sustainability Data Exchange
The EOG stretches into many areas and has a good overview of where the industry is in regard to sustainability, what the big sustainability considerations are within brands and where the CSR teams time and energy is being spent. One of these topics is around sustainability data and how retailers want to both improve their impacts and communicate their better practice to their customers. The EOG has developed a solution to standardise the transfer of all the relevant product sustainability data. This is to create time-savings for all involved, as well as flagging up to Design teams where more progress is required. This session will discuss a few of these hot sustainability topics and how design and sourcing can support sustainability teams.
