Global and Regional Mega-Trends: Understanding Consumer Attitudes and Behaviors in Ethics examines how consumer attitudes towards ethical practices are evolving whilst at the same they are showing increasingly contradictory attitudes when it comes to the subjective of corporate and social responsibility. The report examines the importance of linking ethical products with luxury, health and value in order to make products more appealing.
- In order to appeal to the masses, brands and products positioned around ethicality have to offer some form of win-win benefit for both the consumer as well as the wider environment. This means that ethical claims need to be positioned around luxury, health or added value to appeal to the consumer
- Companies and brands need to position themselves as small and artisanal if they are going to reduce the risk of any claims made about ethical practice and be deemed more trustworthy when it comes to such practices. This is because consumers tend to be more trusting of smaller brands when it comes to ethical claims
- Industry players need to do more to educate consumers as to what constitutes an ethical product because of a lack of understanding related to certain product claims and varying levels of importance attached to these claims across different regions
This report examines how the concept of ethical and environmentally friendly behavior has evolved and is no longer something that businesses can make claims round to create competitive advantages but something that is a necessity. At the same time, whilst consumers are more demanding when it comes to organizations demonstrating ethical behavior, they are also reluctant to purchase such products for them. This report examines how to make ethical groceries more appealing to the masses.
