NAEM’s 2018 EHS&S Forum to Offer Specialized Content for Retail Leaders

Continued collaboration with RILA’s Center for Retail Compliance to deliver value to retail environmental leaders

Washington, DC, May 24, 2018 - The National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM) will collaborate with the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) to develop specialized retail-focused content for its 2018 EHS&S Management Forum in Louisville, the association announced today. 

The Forum is the largest annual conference for corporate environmental, health, safety and sustainability (EHS&S) decision-makers. Now in its 26th year, the conference draws more than 700 corporate leaders for a week of peer case study presentations, benchmarking discussions and targeted networking. For the second year in a row, the Forum will also include a pre-conference meeting of retailers as well as presentations designed to meet the needs of environmental leaders from the retail sector.

NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt said the continued collaboration with RILA also benefits those companies whose retail customers are asking for more information about their EHS& performance. 

"As stakeholders continue to expect transparency and leadership from the business community, there is an even greater need for collaboration across disciplines and industries to meet that demand,” she said. “Working with RILA is an important step toward building a sustainable business ecosystem, and we welcome the chance to grow these connections again this year."

Tiffin Shewmake, RILA vice president and executive director of the Center for Retail Compliance, agreed. 

“We found our partnership with NAEM last year and the Forum to be extremely valuable to our community of retail environmental professionals. The Forum brings together best-in-class educational programming with the opportunity to connect and collaborate with peers across multiple industries on the key topics and challenges we all face,” Ms. Shewmake said. 

NAEM’s EHS & Sustainability Management Forum will take place October 23-26 in Louisville, Ky. A discounted rate for registration is available to all RILA members. In conjunction with the Forum, RILA will host a meeting of its Retail Environmental Compliance committee, open to all retailers, on October 23. This meeting is in partnership with RILA’s Center for Retail Compliance (CRC).
