Our approach

We are living in a world where temperatures are rising, water is scarce, energy expensive, food supplies uncertain and the gap between rich and poor increasing.

 We cannot close our eyes to the problems the world faces. At Richertrade we believe that business must be part of the solution. 

But to be so, business will have to change. Sustainable, equitable growth is the only acceptable business model.

We call our strategy for sustainable growth our Compass strategy. 

It sets out a clear and compelling vision of our future, in which our brands and services reach and inspire people across the world, 

helping us double the size of our business whilst reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact.

 

Richertrade Sustainable Living Plan

 

In an uncertain and volatile world, we cannot achieve our vision to double our size without also reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact. 

Launched in 2012 for our predecessor company, 

the sustainable living plan is our blueprint for sustainable growth.

The plan is helping to drive profitable growth for our brands, save costs and fuel innovation.

 

Our Plan sets out three big goals:

 

First: conservation resources

Second: reducing environmental impact

Third: improving product hygiene standards
