Work Program

The Sustainable Lifestyles program is ambitious. We are working to achieve progress in three key areas:

  • Revealing insights about the most important impacts and activities to address by improving transparency on the footprint of consumption.
  • Innovating and collaborating new products, services and business models that enable sustainable lifestyles.
  • Inspiring, enabling and motivating individuals to engage with the more sustainable lifestyles that we enable – moving individual behaviours towards sustainable lifestyles.

In 2015 we performed research in three critical markets – Brazil, India and China. This research has:

  • Provided target scenario sustainable lifestyles across these different regions.
  • Identified where business should focus efforts to deliver sustainable lifestyles.
  • Examined social factors relevant to innovation direction in order to identify potential social ‘sweetspots’.
  • Investigated the most impactful individual behaviours and decision points, and the aspirations behind these.
  • Suggested collaborative innovation opportunities, where achieving lifestyles progress is unavailable through product improvements alone.
