Retail property giant, Liberty Two Degrees (L2D), will be implementing a ‘no plastic bags’ policy across its malls by 1 January 2020. The company believes that the future of retail is defined by a continued adaption of standards to meet national and global sustainability goals. L2D is also working towards a Net Zero sustainability target by 2030, which sees the reduction of water and energy usage, as well as an efficient waste management system.
