The Evolving Business Case for Sustainability

Speakers: Sherry Frey, NielsenIQ, Eric Schnell, Beyond Brands & Errol Schweizer, Entrepreneur

Consumers are increasingly looking for both sustainable and socially responsible products across the store, but is there a business case for sustainability? NielsenIQ and McKinsey & Company recently released a comprehensive report, finding sustainability and social responsibility DO indeed drive business results, however, how brands and retailers approach sustainability is very nuanced, across the size, categories, and types of claims.

NIQ’s Sherry Frey will share some major insights into why businesses should adopt a sustainable model in this joint presentation on our latest research collaboration on sustainability.

During this session, New Hope Network, SPINS, NielsenIQ and the Environmental Working Group will share data around emerging natural beauty trends and consumer attitudes to help you better understand market opportunities. You’ll also hear from a panel of retail and brand experts, featuring Acure, the Spinster Sisters and The Turnip Truck, who will reveal their formula for building a purposeful and prosperous company that meets consumers where they are—and where they’re heading.
