Arlington , VA, 2017-Apr-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Center for Retail Compliance (CRC) announced today ( 4/24/2017) a new partnership with the National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM) to ensure that a strong thread of retail-specific content will be on the agenda for NAEM’s 2017 Environmental, Health, Safety (EHS) Management Forum.
The Forum brings together environmental, health, and safety (EHS) and sustainability decision-makers for education, networking, and best practice discussions. The CRC is an initiative of the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) established in 2013 to provide retailers and industry stakeholders with access to retail-specific information, tools, and solutions pertaining to state and federal environmental regulations.
Together, the two organizations will provide Forum attendees programming relevant to EHS and sustainability professionals across all industries, including retail.
“We’re excited to partner with NAEM for the 2017 EHS Management Forum. We’re confident that, as the premier event for environmental, health, and safety and sustainability professionals, the Forum will provide our members a unique opportunity to discuss environmental compliance challenges with peers across other industries, while still offering the education and networking they valued from the RILA conference,” said Tiffin Shewmake, executive director of the CRC.
“Strengthening our Forum program to focus on issues that are relevant to retailers is a natural outgrowth of NAEM’s mission. We believe this strategic partnership with CRC will create a unique networking opportunity for our community and build a new path for future collaboration between our organizations,” said NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt.
NAEM’s EHS Management Forum, now its 25th year, will take place October 25-27 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The CRC will also host a meeting for retail environmental compliance professionals on October 24.
RILA is the trade association of the world’s largest and most innovative retail companies. RILA members include more than 200 retailers, product manufacturers, and service suppliers, which together account for more than $1.5 trillion in annual sales, millions of American jobs and more than 100,000 stores, manufacturing facilities and distribution centers domestically and abroad.
