Consumers are increasingly aware of the impact their purchases have, whether it be it through the production, supply or lifecycle of a product, or through the distribution of profits for purpose. In this seminar we will explore ways in which your retail brand can introduce ethical and social values to support conscious consumerism. We will walk through a range of approaches detailing how to develop a robust set of values which resonate with your brand mission and are reflected in your core product range, and we will explore how you can translate these values into actions and real impact.
