Energy Resiliency in the Supply Chain Webinar: Transportation + Sustainability Series
Retail’s increased growth and velocity, coupled with more technology and automation, means more demand for power in DCs and other facilities – and a greater imperative for uninterrupted power. In the final webinar of RILA’s 2021 Transportation & Sustainability Series, Argonne National Laboratory will speak about the current and future state of energy resiliency. After, hear how nationwide retailer/wholesaler Stewart & Stevenson is working toward a more resilient supply chain, made possible through microgrid technology. Unlike generators and other power management strategies, microgrids give retailers a powerful tool to help ensure continuous product flow, keep customers happy and move one step closer toward carbon neutrality. In this webinar sponsored by Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions, learn how to gain foundational uptime assurance, achieve true supply chain resiliency and operate with fewer emissions and more control over your energy use and spend.

About the Transportation + Sustainability Webinar Series:

RILA is excited to present a new six-part webinar series, exploring solutions to the challenges many retailers face at the intersection of logistics and sustainability—from understanding scope 3 emissions to reducing empty miles.

Learn how to build stronger, more resilient transportation networks while reducing environmental impact. Attendees will hear from a variety of speakers with firsthand experience in translating corporate sustainability and emissions goals into actionable strategies, including retailers who have sought to implement effective solutions. The series is free and open to attend so please share with your relevant teams! Attendees are welcome to register for individual webinars or attended as a series.
