Will COVID-19 be a setback for sustainable consumption, or will it instead accelerate changes in consumer preferences in favor of sustainability-related attributes? Before the COVID-19 crisis Asia was poised to become the next powerhouse of consumption. Middle-class growth over the next decade will be a largely Asian phenomenon – with China and India at the forefront of change. Will this development enhance or hinder sustainable consumption?
listen in as we examine our latest research insights (report-for member only / executive summary) into what motivates consumers’ sustainable purchasing decisions in Asia, and discuss why investors and brand owners need to be driving the change.
This program explores:
- What are Asian consumers’ perceptions, attitudes, preferences, and buying behaviors related to sustainability?
- How is shifting consumer behavior impacting brands in the short- and long-term?
- How may the current pandemic impact consumers’ attitudes about sustainability topics?
- What can brands do to support future growth of sustainable consumption?
