One Green Score for One Earth

The purpose of this study was not to create a universal sustainability score, but rather to inspire stakeholders to come together to create it and influence what it might look like. At the same time, we considered how a score could be communicated to provide shoppers with the information they need and want to make sustainable buying decisions. This is how a scoring system will have the greatest impact for the retailers and brands that develop and participate in it. Our opinion is that it’s not a matter of if a universal sustainability score or a series of scores/standards will be established, but a matter of when. Thus, we’d like to stimulate the conversation now, so we’re all equipped with the knowledge required to make the score(s) as meaningful as possible.
