Stats that matter
Did you know that 65% of consumers are more concerned with ocean plastic waste as compared to 58% concerned with climate change? Market studies confirm 31% of consumers are “aware” of plastic issues, and more importantly, 34% of consumers are now “activated”, meaning they are making purchasing decisions based on a product, brand, retailer, or venue’s commitment to sustainability. Consumers want to know what you are doing with respect to sustainability, and more than 50% have actually altered their purchasing decisions toward products that demonstrate sustainability & social purpose.
Your customers want to know if your products are made sustainably, and consumers and retailers want to make sure you aren’t “Greenwashing” and that your environmental claims are valid. Manufacturers also leverage certifications to differentiate from their competitors. These are all important reasons why 3rd party certification is so important.
