Consumers are increasingly making conscious decisions with sustainability and the environment in mind. However, more needs to be done to give consumers greater access to information and offer better affordability and availability of sustainable options. Understanding consumers’ attitudes and preferences towards sustainability is crucial for consumer product brands to better serve their customers and achieve their sustainability goals at the same time.

BritCham Shanghai’s ESG Committee is delighted to invite Crystal Wang from Deloitte to share the key findings from their recent survey on Chinese consumers’ attitudes towards sustainability and their interviews with several leading global and local consumer product brands in China, followed by a panel discussion with sustainability/ESG experts from MNC, local companies, and the academia.

Key topics cover: 

  • Major expectations & concerns of Chinese consumers on sustainability
  • Common trends and differences between Chinese and European consumers’ attitudes & preferences towards sustainability
  • Strategic implications for global and local consumer products brands

This event is suitable for:
