Dynata’s Global Consumer Trends research series leverages our global scale and rich first-party data asset to explore and illuminate the emerging attitudes and opinions behind consumer behaviors and trends. Using responses to more than 11,000 consumers across 11 countries, the reports dive deep into the changing and evolving factors driving economic and social change around the world.
Global Consumer Trends: The Urgent Fight Against Climate Change explores the opinions and attitudes of consumers around the world on the fight against climate change, and the actions they want governments and businesses to take in response to this pressing threat. For many consumers, COP26 and other global climate conferences featuring government and business leaders are seen as a necessity if the world is to effectively fight climate change. Consumers increase the measures in their own lives by recycling or composting, purchasing and installing energy efficient appliances and systems in their homes, seeking out and buying environmentally friendly products and services to do their part in the fight against climate change. But is this enough and if not, what meaningful actions can governments, businesses and individuals should take in response to the urgent climate change threat? The stakes in the climate change fight are high, and the clock is ticking to act. As Alok Sharma, president of the 26th U.N. Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) said, “The decisions we make [on climate change] in the next years and the actions we take by 2030 are basically going to set the trajectory for future generations."Download Report

There has been a marked turn towards open conversations on racial equality, gender and sexual identity, and a greater awareness of what makes each of us unique and valued, elevating the dialogue on diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) around the world. DEI is now a presence in the global workplace as well, bringing awareness to the role it can play in the growth and success of organizations. As more organizations commit to understanding and measuring that impact, setting metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) that can help ensure the desired benefits of DEI can be realized, Dynata’s Global Consumer Trends: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the Workplace report explores the attitudes and opinions of employees and employers on the desired effects and realities of DEI and how organizations can chart a path forward toward making DEI a core part of their workplace experience.Download report
