For the latest in consumer and industry news, top trends and market perspectives, stay tuned to Mintel News featuring commentary from Mintel's team of global category analysts.

Following the recent release of the Mintel Sustainability Barometer 2021, host Samantha Dover sits down with consumer lifestyle experts, trend spotters, and futurists to discuss the current state of global consumers’ sustainability behaviours, preferences, and purchases. The question of whether or not the average consumer really cares about sustainability is an important one, but equally important is how much do consumers actually know about sustainability, and issues like climate change, single-use plastic, and solar energy, as that directly impacts how brands should develop new products, messaging strategies, and future planning. The consumer experts and brands strategists take us through the nuances of the data, including the impact of the ‘sustainability gap’, and offer advice and recommendations for brands and marketers that want to make better sustainability-driven decisions.
