Global law practice Eversheds Sutherland - Consumer sector have launched their latest thought leadership report Reshaping your business: The impact of sustainability on the food and beverage sector’.
In this latest report they have focused on the environmental aspects of sustainability in the food & beverage industry and the over-arching implications for businesses. The report also highlights the challenges boards and legal teams face as this grows in importance and looks at ways to address them.
From the research findings it is clear that there is an expectation of ever increasing consumer pressure, greater scrutiny from investors and a very surprising desire for more legislation. The report is a culmination of views from legal department heads and senior executives in companies at all stages of the “field to fork” chain, both publicly listed and privately owned – representing nearly 600,000 employees and with a combined market cap of over £300 billion.
It is clear Eversheds Sutherland clients are very open to conversations on this growing subject. Eversheds Sutherland believe we can use this report to position ourselves as a strategic thinker in this area, able to look beyond legal issues to the broader challenges facing the industry and demonstrate implicitly how the firm can add value to the client as a business partner.
For any questions please contact Paul Moorcroft, Head of Consumer Group and Partner at Eversheds Sutherland.
