Welcome to the website of the European Retail Round Table (ERRT).

ERRT brings together the CEOs of Europe’s leading multi-national retail companies. Amid the competitive nature of the retail sector, ERRT offers us a platform to discuss the challenges and opportunities that we face on the EU Single Market. Based in Brussels, the capital of the European Union, ERRT’s mission is to develop the dialogue with EU regulators based on the four strategic themes we identified as key to our business: the completion of the EU Single Market; Sustainability; a well-functioning Supply Chain; as well as the effects of the ever-faster Digitalisation of business and society.

On this website you will find more information about us: ERRT’s mission, members, Brussels team and structure. The website also contains figures on Retail in Europe and a databased of our publications, including press statements and our written positions on the various regulatory initiatives we follow.
