Waste is a big issue because the world is in danger of being over-run with rubbish.
Brands have a big part to play in solving this challenge. 24 of the 38 categories Kantar tracks in the Sustainability Sector Index are strongly associated with over-packaging, non-recyclable packaging, landfill, overconsumption and waste.
Helping consumers produce less waste is a huge opportunity because there’s a significant value action gap. The Sustainability Sector Index 2022 found that while 45% of consumers say they want to use products that are reusable or refillable only 21% buy them.
