  • No company is too big or too small to benefit from the CGF’s pioneering work, collaborative and action-oriented work.

    No company is too big or too small to benefit from the CGF’s pioneering work, collaborative and action-oriented work.

    The CGF is already well known for our pioneering work on sustainability. Our members have helped to lead the world as well as the industry with commitments to action on topics like deforestation, refrigerant gases, food waste, forced labour and employee health & wellness.

    But our focus is on implementation – and that is what the Sustainable Retail Summit is all about.If you and your company are committed to implementing as well as talking about sustainability, you need to join us at the SRS. You will hear “from the heart” stories of how hard this stuff is in real life and also how to get over the implementation challenges.

    Reflecting the hallmarks of the CGF itself, we will focus on the CEO agenda (several of whom will share their perspectives) and on how collaboration across retailers, manufacturers and service providers can magnify the efforts of individual companies. No company is too big or too small to benefit from the CGF’s pioneering work, collaborative and action-oriented work. I look forward to seeing you in Paris!

    Being involved in designing the programme for the Sustainable Retail Summit is both stimulating and challenging. There is a real need for a conference that gets experts to decide on ways to implement solutions, not just discuss them. This event will provide an integral and relevant voice to the core issues in sustainability and health & wellness today.

However, the Sustainable Retail Summit is a unique opportunity. It provides a platform for manufacturers and retailers to come together. It focuses on implementing practical solutions.
