An expert on business strategy offers a pragmatic take on how businesses of all sizes balance the competing demands of profitability and employment with sustainability. The demands and stresses on companies only grow as executives face a multitude of competing business goals. Their stakeholders are interested in corporate profits, jobs, business growth, and environmental sustainability. In this book, business strategy expert Yossi Sheffi offers a pragmatic take on how businesses of all sizes—from Coca Cola and Siemens to Dr. Bronner's Magical Soaps and Patagonia—navigate these competing goals. Drawing on extensive interviews with more than 250 executives, Sheffi examines the challenges, solutions, and implications of balancing traditional business goals with sustainability. Sheffi, author of the widely read The Resilient Enterprise, argues that business executives' personal opinions on environmental sustainability are irrelevant. The business merits of environmental sustainability are based on the fact that even the most ardent climate change skeptics in the C-suite face natural resource costs, public relations problems, regulatory burdens, and a green consumer segment. Sheffi presents three basic business rationales for corporate sustainability efforts: cutting costs, reducing risk, and achieving growth. For companies, sustainability is not a simple case of “profits versus planet” but is instead a more subtle issue of (some) people versus (other) people—those looking for jobs and inexpensive goods versus others who seek a pristine environment. This book aims to help companies satisfy these conflicting motivations for both economic growth and environmental sustainability.

This book analyses the importance of consumer behaviour in sustainable fashion and consumption. Consumer behaviour plays a major role in sustainability, and when it comes to textile products, a number of studies have shown that for certain product categories, consumer behaviour during use and disposal stages influences the entire life cycle impacts of the product more than the raw material and manufacturing stages. However green the production, the overall sustainability of a product depends on the consumers who use and dispose of it.

This book covers the elements involved in achieving sustainability in textiles and clothing sector. The chapters covered in three volumes of this series title cover all the distinctive areas earmarked for achieving sustainable development in textiles and clothing industry. This third volume highlights the areas pertaining to the regulatory aspects and sustainability standards applicable to textiles and clothing supply chain. There are various standards earmarked for measuring the environmental impacts and sustainability of textile products. There are also plenty of certification schemes available along with the index systems applicable to textile sector. Brands and manufactures are also venturing into new developments to achieve sustainable development in textile sector. This third volume addresses all these important aspects.

Abstract : Purpose: Consumers' environmental behaviours are not only the result of their positive attitudes towards environments, but also different reasons and motivations exist. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to find out important factors affecting sustainable apparel buying behaviour. Applying the theory of planned behaviour (TPB), this study further examines how knowledge about sustainable apparel, perceived money availability, and perceived accessibility to the store influence sustainable apparel consumption. Design/methodology/approach: Using a purposive college student sample, 235 usable responses were collected to answer the questions. An exploratory factor analysis with principal component analysis was first performed followed by confirmatory factor analysis, and a structural equation modelling analysis. Findings: Results revealed that the TPB was successfully applied in the context of sustainable apparel buying behaviour. Furthermore, it was found that consumers' perceived money availability and perceived store accessibility are important factors that affect control beliefs and sustainable consumption. Research limitations/implications: This study found the needs of educating college students for contexts of environmental apparel and textiles issues. Originality/value: Even though previous literature often found the gap between the behavioural intentions and the actual behaviour, this study found the respondents of this study walk their talk. This study successfully applied the TPB to explain consumers' sustainable apparel buying behaviour.

Abstract: Using a vote count analysis that synthesizes previous works, this study reviews the pivotal factors that lead to greater willingness to pay for sustainable apparel products. Previous work generally concurs that there is a desire for sustainable apparel, even when a price premium is required. Our findings clearly indicate that consumers, when making an actual purchase, are resistant to price premiums unless they perceive a tangible benefit equivalent to the premium paid. These benefits are various, but they can all be grouped as constituting "value." However, that desire does not directly translate into purchasing action. We conclude that that desire is a form of theoretical rationality in the consumer's mind. Even when value is added, the evidence indicates that the apparel will gain minimum acceptance unless the esthetic is also appealing.

"During recent decades, the importance of environmentally sustainable apparel consumption has been emphasized by researchers and marketers because the apparel industry is responsible for several concerns related to the environment. However, despite numerous studies on environmental apparel consumption, current research on the behavior of older consumers is limited. Older consumers have recently grown in their collective purchasing power and are increasingly consuming more apparel; thus, for the purpose of sustainable development, it is important to examine their environmentally sustainable apparel consumption. The purpose of this study is to explain the consumption of environmentally sustainable apparel among elderly consumers. Built on socioemotional selectivity theory (SST) and the positivity effect, this study attempts to discover whether the time perspective of elderly consumers explains their environmentally sustainable apparel consumption. Moreover, by comparing advertisement appeal types, the study further examines how purchase intentions toward environmentally sustainable apparel may be enhanced. This research was conducted with female participants who were 65 years of age or older at the time of this study. A survey questionnaire obtained information about the respondents' environmentally sustainable apparel consumption, time perspective, fashion consciousness, and purchase intention toward shirts shown in environment-related advertisement stimuli. In order to test the ten proposed hypotheses, a total of 154 usable responses were collected from members of organizations (e.g., churches, YMCAs, and senior centers) in North Carolina. The findings showed that older female adults with expansive time perspectives were more likely to behave sustainably when purchasing apparel (H1), with their fashion consciousness moderating this relationship between time perspective and environmental apparel consumption (H1a). Although emotional appeals did not have stronger effects on purchase intention than rational (H2a) or control appeals (H2b), it was discovered that rational advertisements can encourage the environmental purchase intentions of elderly consumers more effectively than advertisements with no environmental messages (H2c). Positive emotional messages were not more persuasive than negative emotional messages (H3a), but they nevertheless enhanced environmental purchase intentions more than control advertisements (advertisements with no messages about environmental sustainability) (H3b). There were no significant differences between negative emotional and control appeals (H3c). These results offer several implications. The time perspective of elderly women is shown to have considerable influence on their environmental behavior. Expansive time perspective is correlated with higher environmentally sustainable apparel consumption than limited time perspective, likely because expansive time perspectives emphasize future-oriented goals, which align strongly with the concept of sustainability. Thus, apparel retailers are advised to consider time perspective as well as age when encouraging environmental consumption; furthermore, their clothing items would benefit from higher levels of fashion consciousness. Environmental messages containing rational information and eliciting positive emotions can also encourage purchase intentions toward environmentally sustainable apparel among elderly consumers. The limitations of the study and suggestions for future studies are discussed as well."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
