Commission's new consumer survey shows impact of COVID-19 and popularity of ‘greener' choices
Today, the Commission released key data on the behaviour of consumers in 2020. The results of a survey, conducted at the end of 2020, illustrate the impact the COVID-19 crisis had on consumption patterns, with consumers shopping closer to home or supporting local businesses. At the same time, they made ‘greener' choices: consumers were willing to pay more for a product that is more durable. The findings will be discussed during this year's European Consumer Summit on 15 March 2021. This day also marks the European Consumer Day.
