Sir Terry Leahy, CEO of Tesco plc., parent company of Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, will give a major speech tonight in London arguing that Tesco is a force for social good. The speech titled "A force for good in society: supermarkets and sustainable consumption," will be given by Leahy as the distinguished Sir Roland Smith lecture. The Tesco chief was chosen to give the annual lecture in London earlier this year.
