Create the Future Break Out Session: Sustainability

Virtual Event


Create the Future sessions help business decision makers leverage the new ideas developing within the retail landscape to enhance CX, drive sales and lead the industry.

While a true circular retail chain may not yet be an operational reality, there are increasing opportunities for retailers and brands of any size to extend product lifecycles, recoup value and reduce overall environmental impact.  Forward-thinking companies are stepping up to take responsibility through post-consumer initiatives that remove the friction from refilling, recycling or reselling their items. These new business models not only accommodate the desires of eco-minded consumers but also present exciting new business opportunities to acquire new audiences, while differentiating from competitors and creating additional revenue streams.

Within a multi-room, break-out format, join experts at leading solution providers and agencies to learn strategies that businesses can adopt to increase their sustainability commitment and drive genuine social impact. Discover how companies that integrate recommerce initiatives into their operations reap the benefits of reducing their environmental burden, connecting with consumer values and creating new retail moments post-purchase. Hear about sustainability and environmentalism, about the importance of dynamic production and purchase path options, and the structures businesses are putting in place to not only reduce their own environmental impact, but also to allow consumers to reduce their own.
