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.
