New Website Helps Brand Managers Tackle Retail Sustainability Requirements
A new website launched today will help brand managers respond to retailers’ sustainability requirements. The website has white papers, tools, a free on-line calculator for Walmart's Supplier Sustainability Assessment, and a blog.
“Ten years ago, we were working mostly with top consumer brands and niche “green” companies to understand sustainability issues, improve product performance, and help them grow their business and succeed in the marketplace,”
To respond to this growing demand for more sustainably sourced consumer goods, Five Winds researched retailers’ programs and developed specific tools to help suppliers understand how to get ahead of retailers’ requirements. Designed for brand managers and sustainability managers at consumer goods manufacturers, the new website includes a free on-line calculator for suppliers who want to tally their score on Walmart’s Supplier Sustainability Assessment questionnaire, and regular blog updates on key issues. Retail Ready Insight™, a new tool for brand managers trying to understand how to get started with a sustainability program, provides a fast gap assessment and recommended action steps.
The new webpage and first white paper article can be found at http://www.fivewinds.com/
