THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER MOVEMENT GATHERS MOMENTUM

In spite of a global pandemic and lockdowns and the fact that consumers have been forced to shop in different ways, Australians are still deeply concerned about social issues and their activism hasn’t waned.  Their views on how corporates should be actively involved in solving social issues has deepened and we’re seeing the highest ever statistic for their propensity to switch brands to support a cause.

This is good news for non-profits & social enterprises as we predict an increase in corporates & brands wanting to partner with the for-purpose sector.

We’re just analysing and interpreting the data from research conducted at the end of August, and the Conscious Consumer Report 2021 will be released on 29 October 2021.  Register for a free preview webinar 20 October detailing the key results below.

WHAT’S A CONSCIOUS CONSUMER?

A consumer that uses the power of their purchase to effect positive social change.  They are now far more than just conscious – they’re warriors and they’re using their voice, skill and wallet as instruments of change.

They’re demanding that corporates partner with non-profits to solve societal problems, and they’re voting at the checkout by buying those brands doing good, and boycotting those that are not.

ABOUT THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER REPORT

The research, conducted at the end of August 2021 by Di Marzio Research, reveals a substantial increase in conscious consumerism. This manifests in changed behaviour including preferencing brands that have a good reputation for social responsibility and on the flipside, boycotting those that don’t.  It shows beyond doubt that Australians do not expect government to fix societal problems – they want corporates to step up and do more. 

The research reveals a continued sense of disappointment that corporates are not doing enough.  Consumers want more from the companies and brands they buy from and support.  They want them to be more responsible and take more action.

So universal is the conscious consumer mindset – across all generations – that CSR & Social Good should now be an integral and everyday part of doing business.It signals to corporates that if they do not embrace the Triple Bottom Line model, consumers will go elsewhere.

Why is this good news for non-profits? Corporates will need to partner with you, to effect swift and demonstrable social change. 

We knew this information was too important not to share, so we gathered our closest allies who share our philosophy of empowering non-profits to Do More and Be More through the power of collaboration. Because of their support, we’re able to make this report freely available to all changemakers.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

We took to the streets to gain further insight into why this movement has grown so rapidly.  They were of course empty, so we gathered on zoom.  Watch what Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y say about their conscious consumerism, the research results and the effect of the pandemic and lockdowns.

The Generations 

Understanding research requires knowledge of the different generational groups and the events that shaped their attitudes and behaviour.

ARE YOU READY TO BE MORE?

We hope this research arms you with the compelling statistics you need to confidently approach corporates for partnership & sponsorship collaborations in 2022. However, statistics alone won’t guarantee success, you need to be equipped to partner.

We know, from 20+ years of matchmaking over $40m in partnerships, that there are two levels of readiness. The first is organisational readiness and the second is partner readiness. If you’re wondering where your organisation sits, give our Readiness Q&A a go (no cost, no strings, no spam). A green score means you’re primed, amber means you have work to do and red means stop!

We’re available to chat through your results so you’re not left stuck at the traffic lights.
