Sustainability: from ambition to action

Durabilité : de l'ambition à l'action

More and more consumers want to adopt a lifestyle that does not harm the planet’s resources. And to help them do so, they rely on the manufacturers of the products they use every day.

Citizens are concerned. In France, people feel that the climate crisis (48%) must be addressed above all else. They are also concerned about inflation and the current geopolitical context.

Overall, 95% of them are ready to act and make their consumption habits more responsible. But green products are expensive and prevent their massive adoption.
In fact, 65% of the general public feel hampered by the economic situation. Yet, 80% say that if brands make an effort on price, they will buy their products.

Kantar has drawn up a list (based on the ranking of sustainable development objectives published by the United Nations) of priority projects for manufacturers (all sectors combined).

• Right to work and decent wages
• Inappropriate disposal of hazardous waste
• Greenhouse gas emissions
• Lack of clean water
• Poverty
• Plastic pollution of the oceans
