#Consumer Products


For more than 20 years, BSR has worked with consumer products, food, beverage, and agriculture companies to help them plan for climate resilience, build inclusive value chains, support consumer behavior change, and evolve their business models.

BSR Director Elisa Niemtzow, who leads our Consumer Sectors practice, will lead the session. We will learn from her experience working with companies in the food, retail, beauty, apparel, and luxury industries on sustainability issues related to their operations and products. Elisa helps companies rethink issues such as sustainable consumption, supply chain management, strategy and integration, stakeholder engagement, and reporting and communications.

The session will explore questions including:

  • What are the global trends and leading practices in sustainability for consumer-facing industries?
  • How are leading brands creating business value through sustainability strategies?
  • How can businesses drive consumers toward greener purchases and behaviors?

We will include time for participants to share challenges and ideas with peers and BSR experts. The event will be in English and Japanese with consecutive interpretation.
