Social and environmental issues research — September 2021 Report

Environmental and social issues report October 2021

Each month, we release valuable new data and reports showcasing the opinions of Australian consumers on more than 30 important social and environmental issues. This data is designed to help businesses understand these issues as input into their CSR/ESG strategies. For more information on our Catalyst program, click here.

September headlines

In September, we focused on:

  • The issues that matter most to Australians right now — can you guess what’s on top?
  • Industry specific issues; where and how YOUR industry should be taking action, including who should be taking responsibility for plastic and packaging waste.
  • Vax access: will Aussies attend venues that don’t require vaccinations for entry?
  • Travel aspirations post-restrictions: Gen Z is heading overseas, and our top destinations are shifting. 
  • The importance of ethical sourcing — in everyday purchasing and large-scale investing — and how Australians are putting their money where their beliefs are.
  • The misinformation problem, and how to address it. Or at least, where to start. 

All of these insights, and many more, are available for free by downloading the September report here.
