THEME “Reimagine Retail Experience”
Sustainable development is the advancement of our society to meet human needs and ambitions, preserving the environment for future generations, while simultaneously maintaining economic growth across all industries. In other words, it is a misconception that sustainable development should impede economic growth.
However, our planet is suffering from unsustainable global consumption and lack of recycling. We live in a throw-away society, where buying new is cheap and keeping old is expensive. We buy things we don’t need and discard things others could still find useful. Therefore, there is an urgent need to rethink consumerism, and the retail industry as the link between production and consumption.
