The Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit Kicks Off Today
The Consumer Goods Forum's annual Sustainable Retail Summit takes place today and tomorrow (15 and 16 October), with this year seeing the event move entirely online for the first time.
The theme of this year's Summit is 'Purpose and the Shared Road to Recovery: Building Resilience Through Forward-Thinking Leadership', and it will offer two days of inspiration and knowledge sharing from senior executives from across the retail and consumer goods landscape, as well as representatives from NGOs and intergovernmental organisations.
The Summit will explore how businesses can 'build back better' and deliver a sustainable, resilient recovery after COVID-19, as well as examine ways to embed sustainability throughout the entire value chain and drive positive change through collaboration.
Among those set to take to the virtual stage over the two days include Jan Dunning, Chief Executive Officer and President, Magnit; Giles Bolton, Responsible Sourcing Director, Tesco; Andrew Clarke, Senior Director Quality Assurance, Loblaw Companies Limited; Isabelle Grosmaitre, One Planet One Health Catalyst, Danone; Erik van Dulmen, Vice President Europe Not for Resale Sourcing, Ahold Delhaize; Ashley Hall, Director of Sustainable Packaging, Walmart Stores Inc; Virginie Helias, Chief Sustainability Officer, Procter & Gamble; Natalie Knight, Chief Financial Officer, Ahold Delhaize; and many more.
The event will be introduced by Wai-Chan Chan, the recently appointed managing director of The Consumer Goods Forum.
