The Evolving Face of Sustainability: Acting Today to Shape Tomorrow

The Sustainable Retail Summit is returning this October for the sixth annual edition. This year’s event will combine the virtual and the physical (here in Paris!)allowing you to connect and join your fellow delegates wherever you are, and however you want. 

The SRS brings together hundreds of the world’s industry leaders to dream big and inspire even bigger impacts.

Our industry has come a long way in dealing with today’s big challenges in sustainability and health and wellbeing, but there is still some way to go. The recent pandemic has further accelerated the shift into a “new era” of sustainability which is set to shape the industry. The event offers a unique opportunity to learn how we can adapt our business models and take positive action today to shape the future of the industry, the planet, and its people.
