Sustainability as a promising market opportunity

Due to the increasing consumers demand for environmental responsibility, sustainability did become a main issue for the operating imperatives of many companies. For example, the Dutch-British transnational consumer goods company Unilever recently released the results of an international study involving 20,000 shoppers in five countries.
