US Survey Update: How Covid-19 Has Impacted Consumers’ Attitudes Toward Sustainability (Select Findings)

What's Inside

This report provides select findings from Coresight Research’s August 26 survey of US consumers on their behaviors and expectations, with a focus on implications for retailers. This week, we asked consumers about their attitudes toward environmental sustainability.

This report is available for free and can be accessed by registering for a free account. We highlight selected findings from our weekly survey across three key topics:

  1. Whether the Covid-19 crisis has made sustainability more of a factor for consumers when shopping
  2. Which sustainability practices consumers consider to be the most important for retailers
  3. Whether respondents are currently avoiding public areas—and which types of places they are avoiding.

Our full report is available to premium subscribers and includes further findings:

  • The top product categories for which consumers believe that retailers should pay attention to environmental sustainability
  • What activities respondents have done in the past two weeks and what they expect to do in the next two weeks
  • A full list of the public areas or travel that consumers are avoiding
  • Whether respondents are buying more or less of any retail categories as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and, if so, which types of products
  • Whether US shoppers are making more purchases online during the coronavirus outbreak and, if so, which categories
