Perceptions of Environmental Sustainability in the Life Sciences 2022: Over 85% of Life Science Consumers Feel Environmental Responsibility is at Least Somewhat Important

Dublin, IRELAND


Dublin, May 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "2022 Perceptions of Environmental Sustainability in the Life Sciences" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Today, a key area of focus for consumers is environmental sustainability and supporting brands that promote and enforce those efforts. As markets move towards more sustainable products, the perceived efficacy of institutional sustainability initiatives is critical to driving growth and trust in your brand.

To help you make strides with consumer audiences, the analyst has conducted an independent market research study to better understand consumer perceptions of environmentally sustainable laboratory consumables. Laboratory consumables are supplies that have limited use and then must be disposed, such as pipettes, syringes, beakers, funnels, disposable and test tubes, among many examples.

Specific objectives from this consumer study include:

  • Understanding the perceptions of environmentally sustainable laboratory consumables
  • Evaluating the current environmental sustainability initiatives within the life sciences industry
  • Understanding the pain points experienced with implementing environmentally sustainable initiatives

This study further highlights the perceptions of life science consumable suppliers and their sustainability initiatives. Finally, this report addresses the barriers to achieving environmental sustainability from the consumer perspective, including the reasons sustainable solutions are no longer used and the features that would encourage consumers to adopt more sustainable consumables. These barriers include cost, product quality, available selection, and other factors.

The complete findings in this study will help you understand the concerns of your audience and how your business can position itself to address those concerns in the coming year.
