Measuring the Importance of Ethical Consumerism: A Multi-Country Empirical Investigation

Abstract

This paper describes the results of several large empirical studies that investigated the impact of social product attributes on consumer purchase intentions.

Furthermore, our analyses demonstrate that consumers can be segmented based on their preferences for social product features and that these segments are not country-specific
