TIP #6

ENGAGE YOUR INDUSTRY FOR BROADER CHANGE Seek out peers in your industry or region. Engage them on these issues. Ask marketing, sustainability or procurement staff from local companies or industry leaders what they’re doing. See if you can find templates or examples to start with - it also helps get leadership buy-in when you can point to competitor examples. The power of collaborating with industry peers can’t be underestimated. We’ve seen great progress in other industries - for example the apparel and footwear industry came together to create the early inspiration for the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, where a collective voice has been able to drive change at a faster pace than indi- vidual companies could.
