The retail sector is constantly evolving, often at the forefront of emerging business models.
Historic retail players have seen the emergence of e-commerce, followed by Digital Natives Vertical Brands (DNVBs), marketplaces and, more recently, Direct-To-Consumer (DTC) approaches.
Today, it's the environmental crisis that is forcing retail players to rethink their business model in depth, invent new offerings and better master their entire value chain. In order to meet new consumer expectations on the one hand, regulatory constraints on the other, and finally the physical risks inherent in supply and distribution chains that have become global.
Given the need to adapt :
➡️ What challenges do retailers face in measuring and analysing the impact of their business and their value chain?
➡️ How can indirect carbon emissions be measured realistically and pragmatically, so that concrete transition actions can be prioritized?
➡️ How can suppliers and customers be involved in the transition process?
