TSC Summit 2018

TSC’s annual Summit is unique from the typical sustainability conference. Why? TSC members are passionate, highly-engaged, and looking for real solutions. Summit attendees are typically those who are on the front lines of the consumer goods sustainability challenges we face today, or they are a part of key teams that can influence strategy and impact. If this sounds familiar to you and your role, we invite you to join us this year as we make our mark on Chicago in 2018.

TSC Summit is an intimate conference, usually under 250 attendees made up of mostly TSC members, staff and partners. Bigger doesn’t always mean better. TSC is known for getting hands-on with the biggest sustainability issues and the smaller session and workshop sizes let us do just that. Smaller conferences also mean more meaningful networking opportunities. TSC members include some of the biggest retailers and most important companies and organizations on the front lines of sustainability. We know the real work gets done at the smaller sessions, hands on workshops and hallways conversations.
