  • Retailer and brand supplier responses to a product survey issued by Greenpeace commencing in May of this year.
  • Correspondence with retailers and brand suppliers arising from the survey.
  • Information obtained from Greenpeace Active Supporters engaging in spot checks of their local supermarkets; and
  • Material that is publicly available on retailer and brand supplier websites.
