How to drive loyalty with sustainable commerce

LoyaltyLion presents: The Sustainability Series

Our five-part sustainability webinar series explore conscious consumerism in ecommerce. In each episode we talk with a guest partner about how offering your customers the sustainable shopping experience will create community, inspire action and drive loyalty.

Sustainable commerce is on the rise. 65% of global consumers are making belief-driven purchases. Instead of impulse-buying, customers are taking the time to research the ethical impact of their shopping. From sustainability to animal and human rights, consumer self-education is having an important effect on shopping behavior.

What does this mean for you? To drive loyalty, you need to connect with your customers by aligning your brand with their personal values.

To help you, we’ve teamed up with six of our partners and invited them to share their expertise on mastering conscious consumerism. See the lineup below:

Our host Jack Johnson, Senior Technology Partnerships Manager at LoyaltyLion, dives into what your customers care about and what changes you can make to align your brand values with theirs.
