Orlando, FL -- Actio Corporation, leading provider of risk assessment and compliance solutions for companies with a global supply chain, has announced participation in an important global event held this year in Orlando, Florida: the Retail Sustainability Conference.
This exclusive event is hosted by RILA, Retail Industry Leaders Association. Actio’s offering will focus on the issue of risk management, specifically on how technology supports strategies for compliance with the SEC Dodd-Frank rule on conflict minerals. Actio is also poised to address compliance with pending conflict mineral restrictions in other parts of the world, such as Europe and Canada.
Retail Sustainability Conference
It's not every job that allows you to make a difference in your company, your community, and your industry. Working toward a more sustainable company – and industry – is one of them.
You can join Actio and others engaged in the same journey at the Retail Sustainability Conference 2013 in Orlando.
Industry leaders will challenge and inspire you. Hear keynote speaker Mike Ward, president of IKEA USA, share his vision to use sustainability to drive innovation, transform the business, shape investments and unleash new opportunities.
Event topics include:
- Environmental Compliance: regulatory trends, recycling best practices, contracting to reduce risk, compliance management systems, lifecycle product management, and reverse logistics
- Merchandising and Sourcing: conflict minerals, private brands, and social responsibility
Actio's conflict mineral tracking and reporting software is based on a proven supply chain substance tracking and regulatory assessment system — over 15 years in the making. The ground breaking software platform was called 'a game-changer' earlier this year by independent judges in a sustainability product competition. Actio’s solution has been lauded by Gartner, the global technology analyst firm. Actio's solution exceeds expectations. Experts call it 'disruptive technology,' 'elegant' and 'enormously helpful and cost effective.'
