Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Consumers are becoming more and more conscious day-to day of the need for sustainable production, and they are therefore very demanding with brands, forcing them to improve their communication, marketing, and CSR strategies.

Green technologies play a crucial role in achieving sustainable production, manufacturing, and consumption practices. These technologies aim to minimize the environmental impact of industrial processes, reduce resource consumption, and promote the use of renewable energy sources. By adopting and integrating green technologies in their activities, industries can significantly reduce their environmental footprint, conserve resources, and contribute to a more sustainable future.

On the above basis, this Special Issue focuses on recent perspectives and new developments regarding the role of green technologies in sustainable production, manufacturing, and consumption. Topics in the scope of this Special Issue include (but are not limited to) issues dealing with renewable energy systems, energy-efficient manufacturing, sustainable materials, waste reduction and recycling, smart grids and energy management systems, water conservation technologies, Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics, green supply chain management, and circular economy solutions.

Moreover, understanding the facilitators of sustainable consumer behavior has been a topic of great interest in recent marketing literature. On the one hand, many authors conclude that those businesses able to adapt to consumers’ urgent demand for sustainability will enjoy strategic benefits; on the other hand, the encouragement of sustainable consumer behavior is usually constrained by an “attitude-behavior gap” commonly observed in sustainability contexts. Then, although consumers report favorable attitudes toward sustainability, they often do not subsequently display sustainable actions. This Special Issue also aims to outline a comprehensive framework on key drivers of sustainable consumer behavior change.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
