What's Next for Sustainability in Food Retail?

Feb 27, 2023
Summit 219-220

When asked about sustainability, shoppers indicate they are most concerned with wasteful packaging and have limited focus on food waste reduction. Carbon emissions are also a top concern as the grocery industry is a heavy user of ozone-depleting chemicals.  We’ll review consumers’ attitudes about sustainability and share strategies to reduce expenses while making operations more sustainable.


  • Hear how new environmentally-friendly rules and regulations will impact store operations in the near term
  • Take away new ideas to reduce waste
  • Learn how retailers can reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions
