ESG Tool Kit for Retailers

Consumers, investors, employees and regulators are increasingly interested in learning what retailers are doing to address sustainability concerns. In response, retailers are adopting environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies, frameworks and metrics to quantify sustainability progress.

Retail executives and senior managers throughout the industry are finding it important to understand ESG issues, how ESG connects to broader company goals and how their roles within a company affect and are affected by ESG concerns.

The NRF ESG Toolkit includes a series of factsheets covering important ESG concepts. It also includes brief PowerPoint slides that can be used to share the concepts with others.
