Researchers will need to comb through all the information about a brand that is publicly available, either self-reported OR third-party reported information for the Project JUST category: Size and Business Model.
In researching this question, we suggest familiarizing yourself with the brand’s reporting by visiting the brand’s website, looking to see if they have released a CR Report, or any information on their CSR or sustainability policies. Keyword search “store” and “retail” in key reports.
Some companies report this information clearly, see this Benetton example. If you are unable to find the number reported, click “Unknown” for the correct year you are researching, and submit.
