The report explained possible positive impacts for the environment amid COVID-19 crisis
Despite the devastating COVID-19 effects, it could positively change in the way consumers contribute to environmentally friendly initiatives, according to GlobalData.
For instance, 45% of British consumers actively buy products that are better for the environment. What is more important, 41% of them claim they are interested in buying these products but don’t actively buy them, explaining there is potential for change.
Although, there is a chance that when the world makes up for lost time, all the sustainable effects will be reduced. For instance, there is potential that consumers may overcompensate by purchasing those items that have been missing. This way, the factories will overproduce to meet demand damaging a positive impact on the environment during the crisis.
