Companies within the technology industry are developing products and services designed to harness the opportunities represented by environmentally conscious consumers. This report provides the sophisticated intelligence relating specifically to the technology industry that is required to target these customers, including breakdowns based on demographics, attitudes, and behaviors.
Features and benefits
- Understand the factors that are driving the growth of green consumerism among global consumers
- Understand consumer attitudes towards issues such as recycling electronic waste
- Discover where consumers feel the responsibility lies for dealing with environmental issues related to technology
Consumers' sustainable attitudes are not translating into commercial behavior because of cost premiums and a lack of accountability. Therefore, in general, the influence that technology has in reducing the environmental impact of other industries is not being replicated in the consumer market.
Consumers simply aren't aware of the extent to which technology can help them become more sustainable. For example, through the use of smart meters and home-automation systems consumers can improve their residential energy efficiency.
Vendors need to be more proactive in incentivizing sustainable consumer behavior (in regards to e-waste, for example) as well as developing more competitive price points for alternative green technologies.
