The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) has made a commitment to driving leadership in environmental sustainability. The central force is the Retail Sustainability Initiative (RSI), which is dedicated to sustainability in business. RILA has also created a first-of-its-kind annual event for the retail industry devoted to environmental education and best practices, the Retail Sustainability Conference. Our membership is committed to advocating for standards of environmental protection that work for the environment as well as for the retail industry.
RILA Unveils Retail Sustainability Report
Comprehensive Report Explores Retail’s Sustainability Successes, Challenges and Vision for the Future
RILA has released the first ever industry-wide Retail Sustainability Report today. The 2012 report highlights sustainability leadership in the retail industry and discusses retail’s environmental, social, and community impacts – those impacts within a company’s four walls, in the products they sell, and in the broader communities they touch.
“As one of the leading industries to embrace sustainability, it is becoming a core consideration for the retail industry. Retailers are working to incorporate sustainability into their strategy, operations, workforce engagement, and connection to consumers and communities."
Adam Siegel, Vice President, Sustainability and Retail Operations, RILA
