Abstract

This chapter explores some of the relationships between retailing and sustainable development through the lens of the COVID-19 crisis. The chapter provides an outline of the COVID-19 crisis, and explores some of the relationships between retailing and sustainable development as illuminated by the COVID-19 crisis. The chapter suggests that the Covid-19 crisis has not only posed a range of complex major challenges for retailers but that it has also signalled some environmental changes that may be central to the transition to a more sustainable future, highlighted some of the inherent contradictions within the concept of sustainable development, and suggested some radical solutions to the challenges of sustainability. The chapter offers an accessible review of some of the relationships between retailing and sustainable development at a very testing time for the majority of retailers.
