As we enter the United Nations Ecosystem Restoration Decade, lasting from 2021 until 2030, how can FMCG brands and manufacturers understand how shoppers’ attitudes are changing towards conscious consumption?
Our exclusive insights, based on our Who Cares, Who Does? study, show how brands may improve their perceived image through their environmental actions.
Shoppers are willing to buy the brands they believe are significant and purposeful. In Latin America, environmentally-committed shoppers – classified as Eco-Actives and Eco-Considerers – are already a majority. And this segment is larger than the global average.
Brands must pay close attention to them, in order to position their values and messaging – and then successfully secure a special place in consumers’ baskets. 3 of the most chosen brands in 2020 are also perceived as the most sustainable, both in all brick-and-mortar shopping channels and online.
Education to raise awareness
Another important finding is that educating shoppers has become an important strategy. Not always are environmental concepts clear to consumers, such as recycling: 57% of all Latin American consumers are not sure what happens to the items dropped off for recycling.
