Presenting a contemporary reflection on ethical and sustainable consumption, this insightful Research Handbook explores the challenges and complexities of living an ethical and sustainable life, and for the researchers who study them.

Featuring cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research from authors with unique perspectives and expert insights, this Research Handbook takes a deeper look at the past, present, and future of ethical and sustainable consumption. Chapters explore, among other topics, sustainable solutions to improve responsible seafood consumption, modern slavery, edible insects and the future of planet-friendly proteins, and the influence of austerity in normalising sustainable consumption. Additionally, the Research Handbook analyses consumer engagement with sustainability labelling in the food industry and the role of shared e-micromobility in sustainable transportation. Empirical and conceptual in its approach, the Research Handbook provides significant managerial implications and reviews the compelling questions in ethical and sustainable consumption research.

With contemporary reflections on ethical and sustainable consumption, this interdisciplinary Research Handbook will be essential reading for students and scholars across business management, economics, geography, environmental sociology and marketing.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book provides an excellent snapshot of the pressing and growing fields and theories of ethical and sustainable consumption, authored by many of the leading contemporary academics in the field. It covers a broad range of timely contexts, providing a lively, fresh and vibrant read my students will enjoy.’
– Iain Davies, University of Strathclyde, UK

''This broad, interdisciplinary and thought-provoking book tackles an extremely important, complicated and intensively studied topic: responsible and sustainable consumer behaviour. It is provocative and critical, as well as hopeful and constructive, and offers an inspiring agenda for future research. A must-read for academics and practitioners!''
– Patrick De Pelsmacker, University of Antwerp, Belgium

‘The Research Handbook on Ethical Consumption draws together an important collection of works, from a multi-disciplinary team of authors. The works provide an overview of ethical consumption in a number of countries and consumption behaviours, thereby giving readers a valuable research source, for better understanding the complexity of the issues surrounding ethical consumption. The works included in the Research Handbook also will stimulate research ideas that can be used to further identify actions that can ensure consumers are effective partners in solving environmental and social issues. Thus, this is a valuable book for students, academics and policy makers.’
– Michael Polonsky, Deakin University, Australia
