Event Details

SYNOPSIS:
Consumer choices have environmental and social implications. The public’s response to the haze crisis in recent years shows that many people in our region do care about whether the products on supermarket shelves are sustainable. However, without a crisis to draw our attention, we tend to look at the price tag when deciding what to buy, rather than thinking about climate change, packaging waste, or human and animal rights.

 

The talk will explore questions like:

• Are consumers in Asia becoming more conscious about what they buy, or is price still a major factor?

• How can consumers distinguish between “good” and “bad” companies? How can companies communicate their sustainability commitments to their customers?

• Does “voting with your wallet” really make a difference?

• Is it more important to reward good companies or to punish bad ones?
