Asia’s eco-lifestyle market

Channel NewsAsia: When it comes to sustainability, cities in Asia seem to be playing catch up. According to research by PricewaterhouseCoopers, out of 26 top cities globally, only Mumbai ranked in the top 10 out of 7 cities in Asia on the list. And while experts say that governments are pushing ahead with policy change, it is the man on the street that can make a difference. But with incomes on the rise in Asia, things could be changing. When it comes to the crunch, could consumers in China not only become the world’s largest consumer of luxury goods,but also the world’s largest consumer of eco-brands?

Spire: Countries with higher income levels such as Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and some of the high end middle income countries in the region will see more concern about green issues and ecological issues. Sometimes that is expressed in tandem with the desire to save individual costs by purchasing more energy efficient devices.

Channel NewsAsia: In China, some estimate that around one per cent of the population is living a lifestyle of health and sustainability, which is in comparison to 17 per cent in Japan and around eight per cent in Singapore.
