Consumers, governments and NGOs are looking to retailers to adopt cleaner and greener alternatives to many of the chemicals that can currently be found in everyday consumer products.

Legislation is slow, and some don’t think it goes far enough – and there is pressure on the retail industry to do more and do it quickly.

Retailers need to respond to manage their reputational risk and increasingly, to maintain or grow their competitive advantage in an age of ethical consumerism.

To help members get ahead of this issue, we’ve invited the Green Chemistry & Commerce Council (GC3) - a US based multi-stakeholder collaborative that drives the commercial adoption of green chemistry - to come and chat to members about what they’re doing and how retailers are making changes across the pond.


  • Understand how you can begin to tackle this issue, with case studies and examples from US retail
  • Help develop and promote tools, policies and business practices to drive green chemistry throughout supply chains
  • Foster collaboration among businesses, government, non-governmental organizations, and academic researchers
  • Identify and leverage enablers of green chemistry adoption
