Reducing consumption is a vital strategy to promoting a more responsible and conscientious use of our precious global resources. But what does this mean for retailers? Or the retailing industry? Can retailing evolve and succeed in representing more than just sales of goods? How can retailers promote shared value that transcends the industry success standard of product sales volume? This breakout panel discussion brings together a full range perspective on retailing and how the role of retail has evolved to become a catalyst for community building and social entrepreneurship. Best practice case studies will be shared along with panel experience and learnings on how "retailing with purpose" can inspire new innovations in retail service and experience. And how shared value at retail has brought together brands, business success and the communities they serve.
