September 26, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will participate at the Retail Industry Leaders Association’s (RILA) Retail Sustainability Conference from September 30 - October 3, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. Distinguished industry leaders and executives will come together at the event to discuss how sustainability initiatives can drive innovation, transform business, impact investment decisions, and unleash new opportunities. At the conference, MetricStream will highlight the advanced features of its best-in-class solutions for managing supply chain governance, social compliance, conflict minerals, and sustainability.

Sustainability has become a key consideration for the retail industry. Retailers are being compelled by the community to adopt sustainability programs that reduce energy consumption and emission of greenhouse gases, as well as waste and toxic chemicals. They also need to satisfy socially-aware consumers who demand environmentally-friendly products, organic food and produce, and more. Another important factor is regulatory pressure resulting from the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires organizations to identify and report the presence and source of 3TG minerals in their products. From strategy and operations, to workforce engagement and communication to consumers and communities, sustainability can no longer be looked at as a ‘nice-to-have’ element - it has become a critical component of a successful business.

MetricStream’s integrated suite of solutions help organizations manage their supply chain, social compliance, and conflict minerals efforts in order to effectively meet their sustainability goals and objectives. Using a central and common framework with a unified approach, MetricStream solutions enable robust risk management, reliable document control, streamlined global procurement, efficient compliance training, ongoing auditing, and real-time tracking, recording and reporting of safety issues, all of which facilitates truly effective sustainability and social compliance.

This conference will also highlight how retailers can work towards planning and implementing sustainable business practices to make a notable difference in the communities in which they operate and serve, and the industry at large. Breakout sessions will focus on environmental compliance, merchandising and sourcing, real estate and facilities, and marketing and communications.
