Sainsbury's: the mutual benefits of greening suppliers

Major supermarket chain Sainsbury's has launched a programme, "Raising the Standard", to assess the level of environmental management among its own-brand suppliers and to raise their environmental awareness. The programme, designed to minimise risk to the retailer, forms part of its efforts to build corporate "integrity" - while suppliers are offered the chance to make significant cost savings, improve their management systems and reduce their own risks. Suppliers are asked to consider the environmental impacts associated with products throughout their life cycles, not just during manufacture.
