The Business Case for Sustainability Practices

October 5, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
Location: E451A

As convenience store operators, we already have enough to worry about, but that doesn’t mean that we can forget the benefits that can be generated through a sustainability plan and emphasis within our organizations. Stemming from the NACS Coca Cola Retail Research Council’s upcoming release on sustainability, this session will walk through potential areas to improve sustainability in packaging, products, store design, and products. Council members will participate in a panel to address financial advantages, consumer satisfaction, and legislative reasons for embarking on a sustainability roadmap.


  • Discuss what consumers expect from their convenience store when it comes to sustainability
  • Estimate the cost of inaction- ignoring the issue in terms of finances, community connection, and more
  • List ways you can start small and grow your sustainability efforts
