Collaborative Industry Leadership
We want to go beyond the basics of compliance and build flagship moments for the industry, by focusing on topics where we can have the greatest positive impact and use our industry strengths to collaborate and innovate to help people live healthier lives.
The Collaboration for Healthier Lives (CHL) initiative started as a desire by Health & Wellness members, as well as guidance from the CGF Board, to explore ways to impact communities across a broad and more holistic set of health indicators.
We are a “DO TANK” co-developing programmes through the first coalition of players cross industry and beyond that are willing to act together, sharing three common convictions:
- By acting together retailers and manufacturers can engage towards healthier baskets
- Experimenting together with local stakeholders, public health authorities and academics leaders, is the best way to learn and to impact at scale.
- Business, innovations and new business models will emerge from these initiatives as a force of good.
The CHL working group, co-chaired by Danone and Walmart, oversee the design and execution of several collaborative models to help us learn more about how retailers and manufacturers can jointly create healthier practices and customers live healthier, as well as work collaboratively with public health authorities. Our vision is to achieve positive change in the stores, for our own people and in the communities where we operate.
We will measure, learn and evaluate our impact with independent academic leaders on our progress towards healthier baskets, based on local dietary guidelines, increase awareness and access to preventative services and see incremental sales for healthier products in participating stores.
