Special Event: Business Leaders & Governments Working to Eradicate Forced Labour

During this event, speakers will share industry best practices, and explore the importance of collaborative action in bringing about widespread industry change. Speakers include a selection of prominent CEOs, representatives from civil society organisations and senior government representatives from the Canadian government. We will explore in greater detail the legislative context of our host country, Canada, which has just elected Sheri Meyerhoffer as its first corporate ethics ombudsperson to hold Canadian companies accountable for human-rights abuses abroad. Canada is also working on following in the footsteps of its Commonwealth partners Australia and the United Kingdom to ratify the ILO Forced Labour protocol.  Join us in June to be part of the coalition of business leaders, governments, and civil society organisations helping to lead the movement to eradicate forced labour.  For further information about CGF's Social Sustainability work and the Priority Industry Principles on Forced Labour: https://www.theconsumergoodsforum.com/initiatives/social-sustainability/

AlixPartners: Practical Digital Transformation: Achieving Profitable Growth

Realizing digital’s potential in consumer products: Profitable growth through tailored transformation. Digital technologies are disrupting the marketplace for consumer products companies. The relationship between manufacturers and retailers - and the consumers they share - are changing at a very rapid rate. This is causing companies to invest billions in digital transformation across their full operating model, including the digital path to purchase -working to make digital part of their DNA. The AlixPartners view is that an alternative approach to digital transformation is necessary - focused on profitable growth and tailored by geography, sector, and competitive positioning. Join us to hear the results of our category- and geo-specific industry research that will reveal successful strategies for achieving digital transformation results while driving top-line growth.  About AlixPartners AlixPartners is a results-driven global consulting firm that specializes in helping businesses respond quickly and decisively to their most critical challenges—from urgent performance improvement to complex restructuring, from risk mitigation to accelerated transformation. These are the moments when everything is  on the line—a sudden shift in the market, an unexpected performance decline, a time-sensitive deal, a fork-in-the-road decision. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients until the job is done, and only measure our success in terms of the results we deliver. We partner with you to make the right decisions and take the right actions. And we are right by your side. When it really matters.

Amcor: It’s Time to Work Together and End Plastic Pollution. We Can Do It, Today.

It’s time to stop competing on the actions consumer goods companies are taking to tackle plastic pollution. The global airline industry did it with safety. The global consumer goods industry can do the same. The technology and systems exist to keep plastic packaging out of the environment and to preserve and reuse these valuable virgin materials. Innovative technologies can help improve quality, lower cost, and enable more recycling, but we can reduce plastics entering the ocean by more than 50% with technologies we have today if they are deployed well – and now.  What’s needed is global collaboration and investment in the solutions we know will address this challenge. And CGF members are the people to act.  When the airline industry stopped competing on safety, they saved lives. When we stop competing on sustainability, we will contribute to better protecting the planet. Many CGF members have made commitments externally, now it is time to move from words to truly collaborative action across the value chain.  In this session, global packaging leader Amcor will bring together business leaders from key CGF member companies and a sustainability leader from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to describe solutions and call on ALL members to activate and collaborate, worldwide. The session will also give an exclusive preview of new packaging sustainability research on the pathway for consumer goods companies, from today to delivering on 2025 commitments, and conclude with a panel discussion.  About Amcor: Global packaging leader Amcor and senior representatives from the Ellen McArthur Foundation and global consumer goods companies will describe what’s being done today to preserve and reuse valuable materials and keep plastic packaging out of the environment, and what it will take to stop competing on sustainability and win for the environment. The session will also give an exclusive preview of new packaging sustainability research on the pathway for consumer goods companies, from today to delivering on 2025 commitments, and conclude with a panel discussion.

IBM: Value Convergence: Conquer Waste with an AI Enabled Intelligent Supply Chain

Growing industry and consumer concerns on social, environmental and health matters require a new level of transparency and trust within the supply chain.  Consumers, producers and retailers need certainty about about sourcing conditions, production processes, product quality, freshness, traceability, environmental impacts such as carbon footprint and critically how food waste can be reduced. The modern supply chain needs to be responsive in real-time, and have the ability to fulfill these at a hyper local level.  In fact, this new reality, driven by the consumer, requires ever shorter lead times, precision forecasting, expectations of full product availability and the assurance that what is delivered is authentic and sustainably sourced.  Technologies such as AI and Blockchain can deliver on these new demands.  Join us for a conversation on how our clients are meeting today’s supply chain expectations. About IBM: IBM is a global company headquartered in Armonk, New York with operations in over 170 countries. Technologies like AI, Cloud, Blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) will change the world. But only if they can be effectively trained, trusted and applied. Join IBM for an experience that will bring innovations, client stories and game changing solutions to life. Together with our clients, IBM is putting smart to work.

Oracle: Of the Consumer Markets: From the Improbable to the Inevitable!

Disruption is no longer an anomaly among a select few who’ve latched onto a new, big idea. Disruption has gone mainstream with specific implications. Simply put, you are a catalyst for change, or you will be left in its wake. In this session, we will explore Why this period in the Consumer Markets is like none before it and why acknowledging this truth is central to our success as an industry. After, we will highlight the What and How through the story of a retailer who was daring enough to question standard conventions on their way to real transformation and new-found success.
