The full-day event is designed to provide networking and learning opportunities to retailers and value chain partners across all disciplines with sector-specific strategies to support a circular economy, build resilient supply chains, establish a route to net zero emissions, and to accelerate ESG solutions across organizations.

RCC’s Retail Sustainability Conference will bring together manufacturers, suppliers, government leaders, and QSR and CPG experts who will address EPR systems, ESG standards, decarbonization, and eco-packaging and explore supply chain optimization and circular economy progression.

The day will be brimming with industry leaders sharing insights on various topics including net-zero and supply chain decarbonization, the EPR landscape and circular economy, sustainability measurement and ESG reporting and technology and innovation in alternative power sources.

Galen Weston, President and Chairman of Loblaw Companies Limited will lead a discussion on how industry led solutions are critical to addressing the plastic waste challenge facing Canada.

Himanshu Sudan, CEO & Co-Founder of Jule will present on retail’s eclectic future and how incorporating battery-powered EV charging at various retail sites across Toronto has paved the way for energy savings while serving the growing EV market.
