Retail Agreement on Waste

With the support of the European Commission, the Retailers’ Environmental Action Programme (REAP) was set up in 2009 by a group of progressive retailers with a simple remit: to improve the environmental sustainability of their own supply chains and so to bring tangible benefits to society at large. We do this by combining know-how, sharing best practices and feeding all this knowledge into the wider EU policy debates on sustainability issues. We also do it through concrete, on-the-ground actions, which directly involve our customers – so bringing the importance of sustainability to the forefront of their minds.
