12.12.2014 : Environmental Retail Management
The European Retail Academy started in August 2008 its SubSite Environmental Retail Management to gather experiences and benchmarking in this field of activities. Prof.Dr.B.Hallier had been involved since the mid 80ies already in the optimization of packaging/recycling - but it became clear in 2008 that now all the Total Supply Chain had to be involved.
More and more it became obvious that not only economics, but also ecology and ethics have to be considered for a new equilibrium of the world economy. Therefore Hallier together with his colleague Mikhail Fedorov from USUE Yekaterinburg/Russia initiated at the Astana Economic Forum in 2012 via the World Economic Youth Forum a special student competition for 2013 about "green issues". As one of its results another SubSite was launched : Global Green University.
