Details of a Breakthrough Case Study on Pre-competitive Collaboration: Walmart and Target

To help bring more sustainable, better products to shelves, Target and Walmart teamed up to host the Beauty and Personal Care Products Sustainability Summit – a landmark gathering of 75 representatives from top brands like Johnson & Johnson, Method and Burt’s Bees, facilitated by Forum for the Future. As a result, Target and Walmart are working with key players to move forward three innovation areas identified as priorities: streamlined information-sharing across the value chain; science-based assessment criteria for evaluating product sustainability; and joint pre-competitive development of new preservatives. Join this session for a detailed update on this breakthrough pre-competitive partnership and get inspired by what is possible when fierce competitors team up in the name of collective shared value and system health.
