The Impact of sustainability on the food and beverage sector new report launch
4th July 2019
We are delighted to share with you our latest Consumer sector Thought Leadership report ‘Reshaping your business: The impact of sustainability on the food and beverage sector’.
In this latest report we focus on the environmental aspects of sustainability in the food & beverage industry and the over-arching implications for businesses. We wanted to highlight the challenges boards and legal teams face as this grows in importance and look at ways to address them.
From our research it is clear that there is an expectation of ever increasing consumer pressure, greater scrutiny from investors and a very surprising desire for more legislation. Interviewees highlighted plenty of risk and complexity, but also lot's of opportunity.
We hope this report provides you with useful insights you can use with your own board.
The report is a culmination of views from legal department heads and senior executives in companies at all stages of the “field to fork” chain, both publicly listed and privately owned – representing nearly 600,000 employees and with a combined market cap of over £300 billion. We also consulted members of the financial and investment community and reviewed recent reports from governments, NGOs and other stakeholders, to understand what’s driving their sustainability initiatives, where the industry is focusing its efforts and what challenges and opportunities it presents to the business.
We hope you enjoy reading our findings and if you have any questions please do get in touch.
