The Consumer Goods Forum’s Sustainable Retail Summit Heads to Lisbon

The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) will be hosting its annual Sustainable Retail Summit in Lisbon, Portugal on 25th-26th October 2018. The two-day event, now in its third year, has quickly become an influential addition to the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) calendar for those organisations looking to drive positive change and support sustainable business practices. The event is open to both members and non-members of The Consumer Goods Forum and will take place at the Dom Pedro Lisboa.

Topics on the agenda include plastic waste, migrant labour, consumer health, food waste and transparency.

Never the topic of solid waste and plastics has been more front and centre and participants will have the opportunity to hear first‐hand how the FMCG industry is looking to do its part to protect the oceans and shift towards a circular economy.
