WEDNESDAY 21ST NOVEMBER, MATCH LOUNGE
Hosted by: Hayley Connick, Managing Director, Too Good to Go
Nobody actually wants to harm the planet. Most people say they’d rather buy eco/sustainable/ethical over the alternatives. But what people say they'll do and what people do are very different things.
This roundtable will explore the conundrum, asking questions such as:
- How far will consumers really go to be sustainably conscious?
- What are the impacts of this for retailers?
- What can both businesses and consumers do to encourage more sustainable consumerism?
