Industry Focus

Consumer Products

With complex supply chains, a growing risk of resource constraints and new consumer expectations, consumer products companies need sophisticated approaches to design and deliver sustainable products and services.

Consumer Products Overview


How We Work


In an increasingly transparent world, companies also need to understand and respond to evolving consumer perceptions and latent needs.

Our team works with our comprehensive network of member companies to develop new approaches to solving sustainability challenges, from implementing innovation strategies to co-creating solutions with stakeholders. For example, we worked with ANN INC. to design and implement a women’s empowerment strategy to reach 100,000 women in the company’s supply chain by 2018.



Our Focus


  • Climate change
  • Supply chain risk assessment; supplier and worker engagement
  • Brand integration and marketing
  • Human rights
  • Inclusive growth and women’s empowerment
  • Strategy development and integration
  • Stakeholder engagement
