Responsible Retail Practice

Responsible retail practice involves our ethical and sustainable approaches in the Group’s retail-base businesses like retail stores, indoor golf arenas, Golf Lab, tech shops, and Academy. These include approaches for marketing, visual merchandising, goods and services offered and their impacts, staff integrity, highlighting and promoting sustainability in stores, and managing the Group’s environmental resources and waste.

Why It Matters to Us

Retail represents the backbone of our business. But we understand operating retail stores incur financial, carbon, and climate costs. We are responsible for transforming our customer-facing locations into sustainability hubs, where we improve product and service value and also create sustainability awareness for our customers. Operation-wise, we aim to reduce waste and transition to more energy and water-efficient practices to reduce the negative impacts on the environment. We also want to make our retail stores a conducive and meaningful working space for our team to be healthier, happier, and more fulfilled.
