Sustainability

In Consumer products and retail

Consumer-facing companies have an unprecedented opportunity to shape a sustainable future. Seize it, and they will create new value and deepen consumer engagement.  

Sustainability is becoming a strategic priority for consumer facing companies – the challenges and opportunities they face span their entire value chain.

Key activities will focus on scope 3 emissions, transparent and sustainable supply chains, reducing plastic waste and the circular economy, and biodiversity preservation. Technology will enable the adoption of more sustainable activities by making sustainability more accessible, scaleable and transparent for companies and consumers alike.

At EY, we believe sustainability is the innovation opportunity of our lifetime. Companies and consumers are now inspired to collaborate, innovate and accelerate to a more sustainable future. EY helps companies tackle the challenge and harness the opportunities to implement the right balance of bold strategic choices.
