An optimistic outlook for sustainable change:

Getting retail sustainability right is a tough job. On the one hand, you have to drive commitment from internal stakeholders, who are balancing price demands with soaring costs, under pressure to invest in new tech and facing a ton of short-term challenges.

On the other hand, you have customers who demand change, but often not when it affects cost or quality, and who lack metrics or a frame of reference to tell the meaningful change from the greenwashing.
And that’s before you’ve even decided on your priorities, set out targets or identified the partners who can help you on your journey!

Despite all this, the mood at RetailJam was upbeat. There are trailblazers out there beating a path to sustainability which will make it easier for everyone to follow. Key demographics are beginning to move sustainability into their top three buying criteria, and most importantly, once you make the decision to improve, there’s a supportive and engaged community of peers out there to help you on your way.
