Opening Welcome: Zero Waste in Action: Rethinking Retail

10:30 – 10:45

 The pandemic has brought on unforeseen changes in the retail industry. In the past three years we have seen changes in consumer behaviour, where they have become increasingly demanding with the ease of purchasing while at the same time preferring to interact with brands that care for people and the environment. This programme looks to advance circular economy discussion in the retail industry, discuss how each segment minimises waste, keep materials and products in circulation along their business models.
