What is the impact of historically high inflation on the UK consumer landscape?

The average UK consumer is experiencing a severe cost-of living crisis as inflation surges to a forty-year high and the price of goods continues to rise. This shock is the result of the sharply increasing costs of commodities, energy, and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and is threatening FMCG manufacturers, retailers, and foodservice operators’ ability to survive and grow. Inflation will have a profound effect on many consumer-facing industries in 2022 and beyond. Consult GlobalData’s new whitepaper, Inflation in the UK: The Impact of Historically High Inflation on the UK Consumer Landscape, to better understand shifts in consumer behavior and their impact on spending patterns, as well as the implications for UK businesses.

In July, 20 leading retailers came together through BRC and signed a declaration for the development of a roadmap.

The roadmap builds upon the Better Retail Better World campaign and aims to bring the retail industry and its supply chains to net-zero ten years ahead of the government’s 2050 target.

It also aims to power stores and warehouses with net-zero electricity by 2030.

British Retail Consortium chief executive Helen Dickinson OBE said: “Climate change is a threat that none of us can afford to ignore.

“The BRC Climate Action Roadmap is a clear and decisive statement that the retail industry is ready to take on this challenge – to be part of the solution.

“By 2040, we want every UK customer to be able to make purchases – in store and online – safe in the knowledge that they are not contributing to global heating.

“Never before has an entire industry been so ambitious in tackling climate change.

“Retail is the critical gateway between vast international supply chains and every one of us as citizens.

“We have a fantastic opportunity to make a real global difference if we can all work collectively.”

Detailed plans for the roadmap will be made known at the UNFCCC Race to Zero Dialogues.
