Diploma Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Market research, grade: 1,3, Technical University of Munich, language: English, abstract: Over the past couple of decades, environmental and social issues started to have a raising impact on corporate and marketing strategies. Fundamental changes in business environments like rising public awareness about environmental issues, tougher national and international regulations and foreseeable depletion of natural resources within the next few decades will sooner or later force the big players from all industries to rethink their strategies. Thus, they need to evaluate innovative product solutions that save scarce natural resources and reduce energy consumption during the entire product life cycle. Taking corporate responsibility, developing sustainable value chains and moving away from oil-based resources will be of growing importance. Thus, incorporating sustainability into value chains increasingly becomes an issue across all industry sectors from automobiles to textiles. The engagement in sustainability marketing is an opportunity, which helps to create a long-term competitive advantage. The challenge on the other hand is understanding the complexity of green consumerism and to implement the right strategic measures to overcome motivational issues to sell green products successfully. The fact that marketing should combine environmental, social and economic goals has also been realized in the fashion industry as the authors research and interviews with industry veterans proves. This thesis is located at the interface between sustainability marketing and conservation psychology. The purpose of this publication is to further the understanding of green consumerism in the context of environmentally friendly clothing.

Abstract : Purpose: Consumers' environmental behaviours are not only the result of their positive attitudes towards environments, but also different reasons and motivations exist. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to find out important factors affecting sustainable apparel buying behaviour. Applying the theory of planned behaviour (TPB), this study further examines how knowledge about sustainable apparel, perceived money availability, and perceived accessibility to the store influence sustainable apparel consumption. Design/methodology/approach: Using a purposive college student sample, 235 usable responses were collected to answer the questions. An exploratory factor analysis with principal component analysis was first performed followed by confirmatory factor analysis, and a structural equation modelling analysis. Findings: Results revealed that the TPB was successfully applied in the context of sustainable apparel buying behaviour. Furthermore, it was found that consumers' perceived money availability and perceived store accessibility are important factors that affect control beliefs and sustainable consumption. Research limitations/implications: This study found the needs of educating college students for contexts of environmental apparel and textiles issues. Originality/value: Even though previous literature often found the gap between the behavioural intentions and the actual behaviour, this study found the respondents of this study walk their talk. This study successfully applied the TPB to explain consumers' sustainable apparel buying behaviour.
