Today, Musgrave added its name to the British Retail Consortium’s Better Retail Better World campaign. Better Retail Better World includes a series of stretching targets for the retail industry to achieve by 2020, and uses the widely recognised United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework. As part of this project, retailers will share knowledge and best practice, and publicly disclose progress on these goals. Retail is one of the first industries to take collective action in this way and we are proud to be a part of it.
Recognising the global impact of today’s sustainability challenges is important to maintaining the ambition and focus needed to address them. Taking Care of our World, the Musgrave 2020 sustainability strategy has the UN Sustainable Development Goals at its core. Similarly, Better Retail Better World sees retailers take a leading role in delivering the United Nations’ sustainable development agenda as expressed through the goals.
As members of the BRC since 2016 we are delighted to join the list of signatories and commit to working together to achieve the Better Retail Better World goals.
‘The BRC is uniting its members to work together to tackle some of the biggest global challenges of the coming decades, as highlighted by the UN. It is inspiring to see that retail is one of the first industries to take collective action in this way. Our support of this campaign brings us closer to achieving our ambition of being the most sustainable brand in Ireland’ John Curran, Head of Sustainability, Musgrave.
