The third step and the ultimate goal of the index will be to translate the information and make it available to consumers.

“This will provide customers with the transparency into the quality and history of products that they don’t have today,” he said. “It will help put them in control and consume in a more sustainable way.”

“Our desire is for this to be a global standard,” he said. “Working together we believe we can shape the sustainability index into a very powerful tool” that will raise quality and lower costs.

“And it will make us even stronger businesses, bringing us ever closer to our customers and what they need to live better.”
