METRO AG's Veronika Poutcheva has big ideas about improving both the environmental performance of the wholesale giant and the consumer goods industry at large. Stephen Wynne-Jones met her. This article previously appeared in ESM's September/October 2021 edition.
When ESM last had the chance to sit down with METRO AG’s Veronika Pountcheva, it was on the sidelines of the Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit in Lisbon, back in the autumn of 2018.
Thus, with this year's Sustainable Retail Summit taking place recently (read our Day One and Day Two reviews), we welcomed the opportunity to catch up with the Bulgarian native, and found her in optimistic form, both about the post-pandemic recovery and her own role as a sustainability leader.
