OECD International Conference - The Consumer Marketplace of the Future

Consumers in the Green Economy

Jun 16, 2021 | 12:10 PM - 2:00 PM


This session will examine how stakeholders (consumers, businesses, consumer protection agencies etc.) can move toward the green and circular economy and to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This session will focus on consumers’ attitudes about sustainable consumption. The session will also cover truth-in-advertising for environmental marketing claims, warranties and consumer rights to repair, issues around planned obsolescence and business models based on strategies to foster reuse, redistribution, local distribution, and short-term “rentals” or products (e.g. in many peer platform marketplaces). Business representatives will be invited to share their initiatives addressing the green economy and emerging consumer preferences, and consumer authorities will discuss related policy initiatives and enforcement actions.
