Hear how Gap has used the Retail Horizons, a toolkit created by RILA and Forum for the Future to help retail sustainability and strategy professionals drive sustainable change within their organizations, to pivot its sustainability strategy to one that is more ambitious, longer-term in focus, and directly aligned with the evolving retailing environment.
The toolkit helps companies to answer a range of strategic questions, while reinforcing the value of sustainability in retail. Questions that it can address include:
- What are the implications of resource shortages and climate change?
- How could geopolitical changes impact global trade and supply chains?
- What will the relationship be like between businesses and consumers?
