The Pacific Northwest is one of the world’s leaders in retail innovation. It has significant, unique, and growing retail sector players – Amazon, REI, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Costco. We also have key players in the shipping sector – Expeditors International, the Ports, and others. More importantly, though, we have consumers that are concerned about the Pacific Northwest environment. Northwest leadership will set national and international standards and help influence future trends.

The retail industry makes a large part of the American economy and considering the range of products, services, and support provided by this sector to all aspects of the economy, consumers are increasingly concerned with the energy impact of the sector. They want to be socially responsible in what and how they buy. As a result, retailers utilize systems and metrics to understand the total costs of manufacturing, supply, sales, and delivery and look for ways to minimize costs and optimize operations.
