What’s in Store: the future of retail

How to make shopping more hi-tech and sustainable

Does technology drive retail or does retail drive technology? Whatever the answer, by responding to customer demand and market pressure, retailers are generally early adopters of new technologies. And they can play a vital role  in building a sustainable tomorrow.

What’s in Store is a short film exploring the sector’s future and how innovative technology can help economies make the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future.  Big data, robotics and radical transparency are transforming the retail world, from Dushanbe to Belgrade via London, Paris and Milan.

The documentary is supported by the EBRD’s FINTECC (Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change) programme which is part of a global drive towards climate technology transfer for developing countries and countries in transition.

FINTECC is part of and financed through EBRD’s Green Economy Transition approach and is supported by the Global Environment Facility and the European Union.
