Event Summary

Any company that wants to stay relevant in the future should think about sustainability.

Sustainability is high on the agenda for UK retailers, who are looking for ways to actively improve the performance of their supply chains. Factors such as climate change, reputational risk and new regulations are accelerating the drive towards more sustainable ways of working.

Consumers are demanding it too. Despite the cost-of-living crisis, more shoppers are choosing to buy from retailers with sustainable and transparent business practices.

This April, attend the Retail Sustainability UK Conference in London to hear from industry leaders and innovators from across the retail sector. You will receive strategic and practical advice on how to build a sustainable retail operation and communicate this effectively to your customers.

Wherever you are in your journey towards sustainability, you will leave this conference with fresh ideas and solutions that will apply to all retailers.
