TSC Works to Eradicate Sustainability Issues in Consumer Products
Consumer goods are part of our daily lives but can come at a high cost to the planet and its people. The Sustainability Consortium, a part of Arizona State University and the University of Arkansas, is working to improve the sustainability practices in all parts of consumer goods supply chains.
For more than a decade, The Sustainability Consortium has built tools and resources to pull together the brands you love, retailers, academic institutions, governments, and non-profits to encourage them to work together to drive environmental and social sustainability impact at scale. For the first time, we’re asking you to join us. #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. We’re inviting you to make your #GivingTuesday gift to TSC this year. We are excited to provide an opportunity for our loyal followers to support the growth of our efforts through a meaningful donation. To learn about the impact made through TSC to date, check out our 2018 Impact Report. To date, we have helped more than 2,000 companies measure and improve their sustainability efforts.
TSC research and science-based metrics help the industry tackle issues that include:
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Food Hunger and Waste
- Water Use
- Worker Health and Safety
- Labor Rights
- Sustainable Sourcing
- Pesticides and Fertilizer
88% of companies who have used TSC have worked to improve their sustainability performance. Half of those companies are working directly with their suppliers to improve.
