consumer futures 2020filtering your ideas Check out these ideas for what characterises sustainable consumption. Use them to help you filter your ideas. Does your idea encompass: > Smart growth, where economic growth is not delivered at the expense of the environment, and where the overall environmental footprint of business has been reduced, delivering more economic value per unit resource used. > Smart use, where impacts associated with product use and disposal are minimal. Characterised by closed loops, or even open loops, where someone’s waste is another’s raw material; take-back schemes, where used goods return to the manufacturer; product to service shifts; and different ownership models – consumers don’t need to possess something to derive a benefit. > A better choice of choice, where the unsustainable product or service is no longer available and consumers are choosing within a set of sustainable options. By deciding what to stock, and what to make, retailers and manufacturers have already made choices on behalf of their consumers. > Positive social impact, where what and how we buy promotes well- being in individuals, communities and supply chains. Transactions for goods and services that have a positive social benefit are the norm, whereas novelty and implied personal status are far less important than they are today. lifetime supply of rental products personalised es fin do rf fa rm sh ar products personal energ y 1st t 2nd this is to cer tify tha 100 har ry moo re own s sha res 3rd ian 4 hom e th pl ac e – in stant feedback trav el – networkab le
