A message from the editor...

Running a business leaves a carbon footprint, so any sustainability claims must always be taken with a pinch of salt.

But that’s not to say organisations cannot be greener – and improve their environmental credentials. Indeed, every week we’re hearing of new commercial initiatives that are scientifically proven to be better for the planet.

Green Retail World’s aim is to highlight when retailers and brands are doing things better and greener – and there are plenty of examples out there. Their inclusion on these pages is not to say they are a sustainable or green business per se; we are simply identifying best practice and reporting what we deem to be inspiring examples for the wider industry.

Systemic change is required to help combat the climate crisis, but incremental steps can help.
