Welcome to Euromonitor International’s newest offering, Passport Ethical Labels. 18 months in the making, Passport Ethical Labels is our brand new research database created in response to the growing movement towards sustainability, social responsibility and transparency on labels. It is the first comprehensive quantitative and qualitative, fully transparent system, translating social and ethical concerns into business opportunities.
With its population set to increase by over two billion people by 2050, its climate changing, increasing water scarcity, and developed countries set to generate barely 18% of absolute global growth across packaged food, soft drinks, hot drinks and beauty and personal care over 2015-2020, the world is changing.
Leading market players have already begun the process of putting social and environmental master plans at the heart of their business strategies, with major implications for their sourcing, their product and packaging and their relationships with customers and suppliers. Numerous fmcg companies have created partnerships with certifying bodies, such as Fairtrade, UTZ Certified, and Rainforest Alliance, or have created their own cocoa and coffee sustainability programmes to look after people, the planet and profits.
Measuring performance of 38 labelling schemes across 26 countries and across three platforms (people/values, environment/sustainability and animal welfare), Passport Ethical Labels offers independent and objective insight into the demand for social and environmental trends and has been designed to help businesses open up new revenue streams, especially in mature developed countries, which otherwise face stagnation. The system will address a range of questions, including:
Passport Ethical Labels will also publish a series of opinions, 26 country overview datagraphics and 5 global reports, providing more in-depth and strategic analysis on key social and environmental trends, helping to put the wealth of data into context. Our first global reports will focus on 1) clean label, and 2) sustainability becoming an integrated part of corporate business strategy.
