Green Bundle: Pairing the Market with the Planet panel
Friday September 28, 2018 - 12h30
This panel will be hosted by UCLA Anderson faculty Maggie Delmas. She will be discussing with top Corporate Social Responsibility officers from Fortune 500 on how corporations can embrace sustainability.
In her new book: "The Green Bundle: Pairing the Market with the Planet," Delmas argues that successful information strategies require a holistic approach that accounts for both the altruistic and egoistic motivations of consumers. With insight from sustainable business and from behavioral economics, she describes the elements of effective information strategies that will help managers guide consumers along the difficult path from knowledge to consumption.
With what she calls the "green bundle"-natural or implicit co-benefits of environmental goods and services-companies can strategically appeal to both the altruistic and egoistic values of consumers. Broadly, green bundle co-benefits include the following: quality, status, health, money, and emotion. Products that pair sustainability with these private benefits create a win-win for consumers.

Magali Delmas is a professor of management at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. Her research interests lie primarily in the areas of business strategy, corporate sustainability and socially responsible investing.

From 2014-2017, she was the president of the Alliance for Research in Corporate Sustainability (ARCS), an international organization that serves as a vehicle for advancing rigorous academic research on corporate sustainability concerns.
"THERE’S AN ENORMOUS APPETITE FOR MAKING THE PLANET MORE SUSTAINABLE — AND AN ENORMOUS POTENTIAL IN THE MARKETPLACE FOR DRIVING SUSTAINABILITY CHOICES".
"Research tells us that consumers buy green products when they benefit not just the environment, but the consumer." Most of us fall somewhere in the middle, and Delmas calls that segment the "convenient environmentalists."
