The Retail Industry Leaders Associaton (RILA) and our member companies are proud to announce that our first Retail Sustainability Report will be released on January 26. For the past several years, RILA has provided resources to empower, enhance, and accelerate sustainability activities in the retail industry.
This report comprehensively details strategies and tactics the industry is taking on a complete range of sustainability issue areas. It is the first of its kind for the full retail industry and will feature topics ranging from store operations; to product design, manufacture, and end-of-life; to employee, community, and other stakeholder engagement. Specific company efforts and case studies are highlighted.
But of course all the retail efforts identified in this report are only the beginning. There is still much more to be done. To discuss these successes, challenges, and visions for the future, RILA will hold an industry tweet chat on Thursday, Jan 26 from 12-1pm EST. Topics to be discussed will be: employee engagement, industry trends, and importance of partnerships.
To join the tweet chat discussion on January 26, participants can follow the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #RILAchat. Have a question on how to participate? Just email kylee.coffman[at]rila.org.
