Breakfast Briefing: Sustainability in the Supply Chain

Breakfast Briefing: Sustainability in the Supply Chain

29 Apr 2020, 08:00 - 10:00

Special Events

Sustainability is on everyone’s mind, no matter your industry. Consumers have been doing their fair share of the heavy lifting by making impactful lifestyle changes, from eliminating plastics to eating local — but what about retailers? It’s on us to step up and develop more eco-friendly strategies at retail scale, and supply chain must be a main area of focus.

Join us at Essential Retail’s event, co-located at the RetailEXPO at London Olympia Hilton on 29 April, to meet retailers ready to think outside the box and tackle the challenge of creating a sustainable supply chain. Learn about the technologies and strategies retailers have used to improve their green credentials — while also improving their operational efficiency.

Sponsored by RELEX, doors will open at 8am and will consist of breakfast, networking, and a panel of experts who will share best practices you can take back to your own business.

The panel debate will answer your questions on:

What areas of the supply chain must be adapted the most to adhere to sustainability goals?

  • What are the quick wins to reduce CO2 and waste?
  • Who in the business is driving these changes? Is it a top-down or departmental-level decision?
  • What are the biggest challenges when addressing sustainability in the supply chain?
