While 2020 showcased retail Darwinism at its most impactful, retail brands have also evolved at speed. In 2021 and beyond, end-to-end retail processes must be cost-effective, relevant, sustainable and beneficial not only for consumers but for retail brands too.
In this presentation, we explore the global mindset shifts and six trends emerging across the sector, including:
The Black Lives Matter movement and the climate emergency are acting as catalysts for shoppers to make more conscious purchases.
Covid-19 is pushing retailers to explore ways to repurpose their stores to offer new experiences or community-focused formats.
Accelerating e-commerce and demands for expedited delivery are forcing a new retail framework that puts eco-conscious practices central to brands’ operations.
This comes amid global online growth for retail over the last 12 months. Yet, as shoppers shift their spending online, strain on supply chains and the effect of expedited shipping and returns are exacerbating retail’s environmental impact.
In 2021, companies must respond with Eco-venience Retail, a fresh framework for supply chains, logistics and consumer reach, as convenience and care for the environment become ever-more intertwined. This presentation covers:
Companies are assessing the long-term implications for global supply chains, fragmented store networks and an ever-more conscious customer.
Retailers are exploring how to combine convenience and sustainability through services and customer experiences that are hyper-local, efficient and eco-conscious.
By the 2030s, Eco-venience Retail will have augmented brands’ online presence, elevated the store experience and turned retail supply chains into brand storytelling.
