PA Consulting's Alan Treadgold, retail expert, discusses his predictions for 2019 in the retail industry for sustainability.
The article looks at how retail will change and develop in 2019 as more shoppers become more aware of the impact of their retail decisions on the wider environment.
Alan explains that there will be a greater focus on sustainable consumption and practices: “Customers will become even more concerned about the ethical and environmental practices of the businesses and brands with which they engage. As well as continued scrutiny on where and how products are sourced, I expect more customer attention to be focused on end-of-use recycling practices for products and packaging that they have no further use for. I’m very confident that we will be seeing a lot more innovative activity in this space.”
