Sustainability and Compliance in Retail Research

Sponsored by: Linney

Previous industry studies have identified that thousands of display items fail to get placed in stores each year. But how big is the issue now and what happens to these displays?

Historically these studies have focused on identifying the scale of the issue without considering the implications on the environment.

Using a combination of high level interviews with brands, retailers (both head office and at store level) and installation specialists, in-store investigations and desk research, we will establish the size of today’s non-compliance issues, their impact on the environment and provide recommendations for the industry to improve its performance.
