Sustainability is a pressing local, national and global issue. Politicians, the media campaigners and individuals alike have all turned unprecedented focus onto climate change and the environment.

Retail is coming under the spotlight and retailers are increasingly being challenged to develop and embed more sustainable practices.

As part of our Better Retail Better World campaign and in the run-up to the UN Climate Change Summit taking place in the UK in November, we’ll be using our Annual Lecture platform to debate the sustainability challenge for UK retail and the industry response.

We’re delighted to welcome Tanya Steele, Chief Executive of WWF UK, as our keynote speaker this year.
