Sustainable Consumption as a Part of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development
Taking a strategic approach to sustainable consumption can help local and international companies achieve their sustainable development goals that focus on responsible production and consumption. The aim of this study is to shed some light on this issue by reviewing the literature on the relationship between corporate social responsibility and sustainable development, and also discusses the issue of sustainable consumption in Thailand. In general, the approaches to sustainable consumption can be classified according to two categories: consuming less and consuming ‘right’ through the purchase of green products. A detailed discussion of the strategic approaches to sustainable consumption is included in the article.
