This event brings together executives from all major retail and consumer product segments along with relevant solution providers to address the key issues of sustainability and environmental compliance for retail.


Sustainability is retail's future, and at this conference, you won't just sit and listen. You will actively participate and conversewith experts on the trends changing the way retail will look in 5, 10, even 20 years.

How else is this year's event different? The conference format has been redesigned to put a spotlight on the future and facilitate the discussions and forward-thinking that will help prepare you for retail's future. New program features include:

  • Microsessions
  • Future-focused workshops
  • Off-site looks at sustainable facilities in action
  • On-site development workshops

The same top-notch educational and networking opportunities that bring attendees back year-after-year are still a central focus of the conference, including the opening keynote with Hubert Joly, CEO of Best Buy.

This new format continues to gather leaders across every critical retail role – such as marketing, communications, real estate and compliance - to address the leading sustainability challenges in a fresh new way.
