Our industry is facing a clear call to action. People are demanding sustainable products and want to live healthier lives, and they expect our industry to deliver. At the same time, the UN Sustainable Development Goals demand co-ordinated industry action. These demands, together with an uncertain political environment and ever-more complex supply chains, mean it’s harder than ever to know how to implement strategies and actions that will secure the long-term, sustainable growth of your business. However, the Sustainable Retail Summit (SRS) provides a unique opportunity to learn first-hand how companies and consumers are taking positive action towards changing their behaviour to improve transparency and overcome today’s biggest industry challenges. From eradicating forced labour, reducing and measuring food loss and waste, to sourcing palm oil more sustainably and supporting healthier diets and lifestyles, the SRS provides practical sessions on implementing change and meeting these challenging demands head on.
Tailored for retailers, manufacturers and service providers, this event targets high-level representatives, including CEOs and senior executives. Attendees will include senior executives for whom sustainability and health & wellness are key issues. It will also provide an outreach opportunity to external stakeholders, including governments and NGOs, thus strengthening the industry’s positioning as a leader in responding to global challenges.
Smaller regional players will have the opportunity to learn from larger global players so that all can benefit from knowledge and best practice sharing on sustainability and on the implementation of pillar resolutions.
