About 2022 SRS:

Our industry has come a long way in dealing with today’s big challenges in sustainability and health and wellbeing, as seen in our recent annual report, but there is still some way to go.

The recent pandemic has further accelerated the shift into a “new era” of health and sustainability which is set to shape the industry. The event offered a unique opportunity to learn how we can reinvent our business models and take positive action today to shape the future of the industry, the planet, and its people. 

And, for the first time, the Sustainable Retail Summit was held directly after the brand new Supply Chain Conference, so delegates had the option to attend both events and to learn more about supply chain challenges from those leading global supply chains.

Agenda Highlights

Over the course of two days, delegates will learn first-hand how companies are taking positive actions to drive progress and overcome today’s biggest sustainability and health challenges. Through a series of inspirational keynotes, plenary sessions, expert panels, interactive breakouts and workshops, we will deep dive into the practical ways we can accelerate change and action sustainably. Simply talking about these challenges is no longer enough if we are to protect people and planet, so we must now focus on tangible actions, highlight successes and share learnings.

Leadership and best practices: Accelerating purpose-driven opportunities through forward-thinking companies
