Consumers Say Green Products Don’t Define a Firm’s Sustainability

july-chart-1aA slight majority of consumers think a company can be environmentally responsible without making green products, according to research from the Natural Marketing Institute.

Companies have two broad approaches to the sustainability marketplace: creating an environmentally-friendly or socially-responsible product, or taking some other sort of corporate action. Such corporate actions can include building a green office/facility, using renewable power or donating time or money to causes.

Not surprisingly, LOHAS consumers, the opinion leaders in the sustainability space, set the bar much higher, with half believing a company that does not produce some variation of a green product cannot truly be considered environmentally-friendly. Since LOHAS consumers predict how mainstream consumer opinion will shift in the future, companies claiming to be environmentally-friendly must consider greening their product mix to avoid diminished consumer trust as the green market evolves, according to the 2008 LOHAS Consumer Trends Database.

One thought on “Consumers Say Green Products Don’t Define a Firm’s Sustainability

  1. I think the first step for a company to become environmentally-friendly involves changing their business practices. From there, they can then work on developing green products. It does take time for companies to transition into a truly eco-friendly pattern of behavior. While it may not happen tomorrow, companies should still receive credit for working towards more eco-friendly products.
