CFR Early Insight #31 | The challenge of changing consumer behavior to be more sustainable

A hybrid seminar with Aylin Cakanlar, Center for Retailing.

The challenge of changing consumer behavior to be more sustainable

Reducing the ecological footprint and securing a climate-safe future are key challenges for the retail industry. One important component towards a more sustainable retail industry is inducing consumers to shop more sustainably, opting for product repairs over replacement, and reducing waste generation. Yet, effectively encouraging consumers to embrace sustainable behavior has proven to be a challenging endeavor.

On September 27, Aylin Cakanlar will present insights from existing academic research and her own work on fostering sustainable consumer behavior. Using this as background, this seminar will discuss several factors that impede consumers from adopting more sustainable practices and identify insights on motivating consumers to embrace sustainable choices.
