Food Marketing Institute (FMI) has released a sustainability resource for food retailers. "Making the Business Case for Sustainability: A Guide for Practitioners" offers a practical approach and specific company examples to enable readers to successfully incorporate sustainability into their business aims.
"FMI members recognize that our industry is uniquely positioned to make a difference by providing consumers with more sustainable choices, producing food as efficiently as possible and reducing our direct environmental impact throughout the supply chain," noted Jeanne von Zastrow, senior director of sustainability for the Arlington, Va.-based trade organization.
The free guide, created by FMI’s members of the Sustainability Executive Committee, with assistance from San Francisco-based Blu Skye Consulting, provides a step-by-step process to boost sustainability’s importance within a company, embed sustainability into business processes and day-to-day decisions, and engage employees in continuing sustainability efforts. It can be downloaded from the FMI Store.
