Sustainable Shoppers Webinar – April 9, 2019

Julia Wilson, Vice President of Global Responsibility & Sustainability at Nielsen, dives into how sustainability in the FMCG landscape is evolving in this presentation. Consumers aren’t just demanding that companies make changes to better the world. They’re also making a few adjustments themselves. The majority (73%) of consumers say they would definitely or probably change their consumption habits to reduce their impact on the environment. That doesn’t mean every sustainability trend provides an equal opportunity for growth. There’s a wealth of sales trends globally that show that products living in the sweet spot of “healthy for me and healthy for the world” are growing in demand.
