Profit and social value aren’t mutually exclusive objectives.

Retail leaders now recognise that their business models must be sustainable — and addressing the ESG agenda should be key to major policy decisions.

This isn’t a ‘tick-box’ exercise. Responsible customers want to see real action from their favourite brands — and will vote with their feet, wallets and voices on social media. Investors follow closely behind, seeking assurances on ethics and sustainability before lending.

As a certified B Corp with extensive ESG credentials, we combine legal expertise with our commitment to bringing about positive and lasting change. We know that many retailers want to work with partners who share their values and whose practices align with the expectations of their clients.

That’s why our retail team contains specialist lawyers with vast experience in helping retailers to improve their sustainability and address any challenges that arise along the journey.

This includes advising on the green aspects of real estate portfolios, implementing new policies and processes, setting up charitable foundations, protecting and exploiting brands, complying with constantly changing environmental regulations and even helping businesses to become B Corps themselves.

We work with many of the UK’s largest retailers and shopping centres and are truly on the frontlines of ESG in retail.

If you want to improve the sustainability of your business — we can help.
