Environmental factors are one of the key issues these days. Every company has to ensure that they contribute in reducing carbon footprint and to increase energy efficiency (Bream 2008) which means big companies like Sainsbury’s would have to invest more money to sort out Green issues.
With the growing ethical issues such as selling organic foods and treating animals in а good way may have impacts on the business of Sainsbury’s because they would have to retain their customers and balance their pricing after maintain all the environmental issues.
Sainsbury’s would have to develop its packaging and labelling policies to meet all the implications of LAW on food and drinks which will add extra cost to their overall budget. As Sainsbury’s operate а bank and is involved with financial services they would have to be more concerned about the legal issues and risks involved with their business.
