Sustainability Issues in the Supply Chain: Innovation in Retailing and the Implications for Management, Economic, Environmental and Social Policies and Strategies for Competitiveness
In the post crisis period, wide ranging changes are necessary not only to improve sustainability but to anticipate market volatility in the medium to long term. Within the context of a number of regional and international environmental, economic and trade agreements, retail businesses and those that are linked to them, either backward or forward, need to be ready for changes in the competitive environment both from within their own economy and from external sources. This conference brings together industry, policy makers and regulators, and researchers from academia or consultancy firms to focus on issues of sustainability and strategies for raising competitiveness in distributive services industries and those closely connected to them.
Papers are invited from academics, research institutions, consultants, business firms in retail, wholesale, manufacturing, logistics, technology provision, professional and business services, government policy makers and regulators from different levels, industry organizations, consumer associations and those interested in retail distribution and their effects.
