Dec '09
Whether it's conserving water in their stores, promoting their reusable shopping bags or many retailers are committed to the “greentailing” movement. Green topics such as how to save and make money with green stores and consumer response to sustainability will be some of the many featured sessions at NRF's 99th Annual Convention and EXPO. More than 17,500 retail executives and experts will come together to discuss green retailing and other pertinent industry issues at NRF's BIG Show, January 10-13, 2010. The four-day event will be held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. NRF's 160,000 sq. foot EXPO hall will also feature a one-of-a-kind “Green Pavilion” for guests to see first-hand what goes into making a store green.

Sustainability takes center stage on Monday, January 11, from 9:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m., with the Super Session Sustainability in Retail – Increasing Profitability and Impacting the World. Walmart Stores' Matt Kistler, Senior Vice President of Sustainability, and Peter Graf, Chief Sustainability Officer at SAP will provide an end-to-end picture of what “green” truly means for retailing.
