RILA, Sustainable Brands continue partnership
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) has decided to continue its partnership with Sustainable Brands for their 2018 flagship conference in Vancouver, Canada for the second year in a row. The event, Redesigning the Good Life, is part of a three-year initiative to discover how drive for a better world is transforming the way brands deliver value.

The 2018 Sustainable Brands conference will be held during June 4-7, 2018.

As part of the partnership, RILA will produce a retail-specific educational track focused on the issues, opportunities, and challenges of sustainable retail within the Sustainable Brands programme – and specifically addressing the circular economy. The Sustainable Brands conference covers innovation and sustainability initiatives across multiple consumer-facing industries.

“We initially chose to partner with Sustainable Brands to introduce our retailers to new and innovative approaches to CSR, while continuing to deliver the leadership content historically featured at RILA’s Sustainability Conference,” said RILA senior vice president of Research, Innovation, and Sustainability Adam Siegel. “The Sustainable Brands community welcomed us with open arms, and I saw last year’s conference as a huge step toward building a lasting partnership. We look forward to building on that experience, and to bringing together our communities again for more transformational content and experiences in Vancouver.”

“We are delighted to continue our strategic partnership with RILA in 2018,” states KoAnn Vikoren Skryzniarz, founder of Sustainable Brands. “Retailers command a critical position within the global economy, with significant potential to both support and help reshape consumer choices and lifestyles. The retail sector has both a substantial need, and great opportunity to rethink business models and approaches to serving customers alongside the brands they choose to partner with. We look forward to another great year of convening both retailers and their brand partners together in one room to share insights and collaborate more fully on redesigning value propositions, business models, and customer experience in ways that support their own resiliency and a better future for all.” (SV)
