edie Responsible Retail Conference

Whether it is the megatrends of climate change, resource scarcity and population growth; global issues such as modern slavery and plastic waste; or sector-specific challenges which have contributed to a decline in consumer confidence - Britain’ s retail industry is facing serious headwinds.

But behind every challenge lies an opportunity. An opportunity to accelerate the transition to the circular economy; to invest in carbon-cutting technologies and innovations; to form new collaborations which reduce supply chain impacts; and to use frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals to drive positive social and environmental change.
