Abstract: Recently, marketing of products with environmentally friendly characteristics has become a promising strategy to attract a specific segment comprised of environmentally conscious consumers. However, the question is whether investments in environmentally friendly production practices are economically viable, which partially depends on consumers’ preferences and demand for certain pro-environmental attributes. Does it “pay” to be environmentally friendly? Are individuals concerned about the environment necessarily willing to pay a price premium for environmentally friendly plant production practices? The extent to which individuals are concerned about environmental problems may influence decisions for products that offer environmentally friendly characteristics. The key is to know who these people are, and how to market to them accordingly. If you find the right answer to these questions, you’re on the right track.
