Publication Date Jun 17, 2022


The COVID-19 pandemic has made significant differences in consumers' sustainable consumption behaviors and their attitudes toward environmental issues. After the global spread of the virus, a growing number of people became more aware of the environmental impact of their consumption habits, and their purchasing decisions shifted to favoring products and brands that place a higher value on environmental issues. Therefore, this chapter aims to introduce what the existing knowledge has presented about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on consumers' sustainable consumption practices and presents an overview of the existing literature. For this purpose, the current study focused on the recent research that addressed the changes in the sustainable consumption behaviors of consumers from different aspects, such as consumer spending habits, adopting a voluntarily simple life, consumption of energy and natural resources, the purchase, consumption, and use of environmentally friendly products and participating in sustainable practices.
