Retail NZ has announced that it will be holding its 2021 Sustainability Forum in Auckland on 25 June.
Chief Executive Greg Harford says that the organisation will be hosting a range of speakers talking about climate change, the circular economy, waste, and ethical procurement.
“The Forum is a fantastic opportunity to hear from leading retailers like The Warehouse and Kathmandu, about current sustainability issues, as well as from the Ministry for the Environment about what Government decisions on plastic and climate change could mean for your business.
“We’ll also be sharing some exciting new customer research on how consumers view retailers’ sustainability journeys, and what retailers need to be thinking about.”
Harford says the purpose of the Forum is to share best practices for running a sustainable retail business in New Zealand.
“There will be opportunities for Q+A, as well as time for networking. It promises to be a really exciting day and anyone with an interest in sustainability is welcome to attend, no matter what sort of business you’re in.”
