A subscription to SCRI will give you:

  • Cross industry news and analysis drawn together and condensed into 25 pages of manageable, practical insight that can be used and applied in your day to day role

  • Horizon scanning for upcoming industry trends, risks and opportunities – a mid to long term look at where your corporate strategy should be heading
  • In-depth analysis of how brands have developed specific initiatives: where is the value, what are the concerns and risks, what are the savings, what ground rules are required, what about scalability?
  • Insight into new campaigns and partnerships – see what NGOs are targeting brands for, and make sure to avoid this in your own supply chain
  • Compact and comprehensive sector snapshots – what are the current issues and what needs to be done going forward.
