Sustainable Retail - unlocking your competitive advantage

Time: 09:30
Venue: IP-City Centre, 1 Bath Street, Ipswich IP2 8SD

Join M&S and other sustainability leaders to understand how your business can develop its competitive advantage through sustainability

The world of retail as you know it is changing. Sustainability is gaining momentum but is also posing new challenges.

Keeping up with the rapid advancements in lighting, heating and cooling technologies is hard, but which ones should your business invest in? Consumers want to know where their products are coming from and how they are made, but what do you need to disclose and how?  Your customers have their own environmental strategies that you need to adhere to from policies to questionnaires, but how do you meet all their sustainability requirements?    

Businesses like M&S are turning these challenges into opportunities, enabling them to create that all-important competitive advantage. By becoming more sustainable, many retailers have found ways to reduce operational costs, minimise sourcing risks and improve customer satisfaction.   

To find out how your company can harness this momentum, join M&S and other leading sustainable businesses at the FREE event ‘Sustainable Retail, unlocking your competitive advantage’ hosted by Suffolk and Norfolk County Councils as part of the BEE Anglia project.

The event takes place on Friday 9th March, at the IP-City Centre in Ipswich from 9.30am – 1.00pm, with refreshments and lunch provided.

The speakers will be sharing some of the following insights:

  • M&S:  what sustainability means to us, our challenges and opportunities and how we are working with suppliers to realise sustainability strategy 
  • Where Does It Come From?:  understand how your business can develop a sustainable sourcing policy and why your customers will care
  • Hubbard Limited, MAAC conditioning and Bright Light Technologies: latest trends in heating and cooling and how your business could be more sustainable, whilst reducing operational costs
  • Other speakers TBC
