Report Sample Abstract:

Drinks manufacturers consider sustainability to be of high importance. In order to foster a sustainable culture, the effective communication of company sustainability values and policy is required. Nestle acknowledges that consumer interest in sustainable sourcing of products has increased, and that a growing desire to purchase products that create value throughout the supply chain exists. In accordance with such consumer demand, Nestle produced the Cocoa Plan website, which is a source of information for customers reading the company‟s sustainable cocoa initiatives.

Predictions of customer expenditure on sustainability - by company turnover

Further analysis of expenditure indicates that companies with turnover of less than US$100 million expect „a brand renowned for its commitment to sustainable development‟, „products attached with health and nutritional benefits‟ and „greener products with a lower environmental impact‟ to experience the highest expenditure.

Similarly, companies with turnover between US$100 million and US$1 billion anticipate that „products attached with health and nutritional benefits‟, „products generated from organic farming‟ and greener products with a lower environmental impact‟ will experience greater expenditure.

Companies with turnover of US$1 billion or more anticipate that „greener products with a lower environmental impact‟, „a brand renowned for its commitment to sustainable development‟ and „ethical sourcing‟ will experience increased customer expenditure.
