The Role of Retail featuring Derek Eisel (Scope 5), Anne Goodchild (University of Washington), Matt O'Laughlin (K2 Skis), and Felipe Sandoval (Amazon.com) | October 2 | Fourth & Madison Building, 18th Floor Conference Room, Seattle | 730-900 a.m. | Contact us to sponsor the event.

The retail industry makes up about 70% of the American economy and is one of the four big economic indicators of a country's financial health. Considering the range of products, services, and support provided by this sector to all aspects of the economy, consumers are increasingly concerned with the energy impact of the sector. Sustainability and energy issues are prevalent in every aspect of the retail industry:  Production, Shipping, and Selling.Sustainable RetailWith more and more people buying online and receiving same-day delivery, many consumers are looking for ways to understand the sustainability and energy footprint of the products and services they use. They want to understand the sustainability costs of the retail experience.  They want to be socially responsible in what and how they buy.  As a result, retailers want to understand the total costs of manufacturing, supply, sales, and delivery.  To do this, they need systems and metrics to detail those costs as they consider ways to minimize costs and optimize operations.

The Pacific Northwest is one of the world's leaders in retail innovation.  It has significant, unique, and growing retail sector players  Amazon, REI, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Costco. We also have key players in the shipping sector   Expeditors International, the Ports, and others. More importantly, though, we have consumers that are concerned about the Pacific Northwest environment.  Northwest leadership will set national and international standards and help influence future trends.
