The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) announced today that Sprouts Farmers Market has joined as a new TSC member. TSC translates the best sustainability science into business tools that are used all over the world to create more sustainable consumer products. With over 100 members and partners, TSC brings together a wide range of companies, NGOs and sustainability experts to drive environmental and social sustainability impact at scale.
Sprouts Farmers Market, one of the fastest-growing retailers in the United States, is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona and has more than 300 stores in 19 states from coast to coast. They specialize in fresh, natural and organic products at prices that appeal to everyday grocery shoppers.
Sprouts joined TSC to better understand the risks and opportunities within their supply chains and identify areas to improve the social and environmental performance of the products on their shelves. They will be actively involved in TSC initiatives and innovation programs that include food waste, deforestation and the circular economy.
"We warmly welcome Sprouts Farmers Market as new TSC members," said Euan Murray, TSC Chief Executive.
