Each year, the US based Green Retail Decisions Innovation Summit brings the retail sector together in search of greener business models. Although, the Green Retail Decisions Innovation Summit is an exclusive invitation-only event for retail industry senior executives and leading industry suppliers, a special report has been compiled which provides an overview of the summit proceedings.

During this focused three-day event, qualified participating retailers and suppliers engaged in boardroom briefings and one-on-one meetings, heard keynote presentations, and participated in networking. Developed in partnership with a retailer advisory board, the Green Retail Decisions Innovation Summit is the only retail industry sustainability event showcasing forward-looking work being done by leading industry suppliers, and focused on innovation, strategy and the future of green retailing.
Collaboration and community continued as themes during this year’s Summit, clearly demonstrated by retailer and supplier attendees, as well as by special keynote speakers, including Fred Bedore of Walmart, Kathy Loftus of Whole Foods Market and Dave Oshinski of The Home Depot.
