INTRODUCING: The Progressive Grocer ESG Impact Summit & Idea Exchange

Our inaugural Impact Awards program honored 25 exceptional companies making a difference in nine environmental, social and governance areas.  Now, those companies are sharing fresh insights behind their inspiring stories during a one-day virtual event with the goal of advancing ESG exceptionalism throughout the grocery industry.  We’ll be hosting panel presentations and idea exchange sessions in which industry leaders share lessons learned from their Impact Award initiatives that addressed pressing issues facing grocers and the communities they serve.  

Topics Include:

  • Community Service/Local Impact: Food retailers enjoy strong bonds with local communities, but those relationships require nurturing to strengthen and deepen. Discover how Impact Award winners did just that through innovative and unconventional approaches to foster deeper community connections by executing complex initiatives with measurable results.
  • Diversity, Inclusion & Workforce Development: Retail industry leaders have unleashed their creativity to advance the cause of diversity and inclusion and the potential of all employees.  Hear how industry innovators are employing disruptive approaches to make real progress against new areas of opportunity for enduring impact.
  • Sustainability, Resource Conservation & Ethical Sourcing: Retailers and consumer goods companies have embraced the concept of doing well by doing good at the highest levels. Listen as Impact Award winners describe transformative approaches to eliminating food waste, solving recycling challenges and setting goals to hold themselves accountable to shoppers’ new expectations of corporate responsibility.
  • Food Security, Nutritional Leadership & Philanthropic Innovation: Grocers routinely do great things in their communities and that was especially evident throughout the pandemic. Impact Award winning retailers and suppliers share their amazing stories of improving food access and education through acts of generosity and selflessness.

Progressive Grocer is taking the purpose-driven philosophy that led to the development of the Impact Awards to the next level with the ESG Impact Summit & Idea Exchange.  Join us to listen and learn from ESG innovators and apply insights to your own organization.
