Consumer WTP for Sustainability Attributes in Beer
Estimation data from a targeted nationally representative sample eliciting consumer willingness to pay for sustainability attributes in beer. Different eco-labels are used to depict different aspects of sustainability including: water use, energy use, and landfill diversion. The survey was constructed in Qualtrics and distributed using Kanter. We collect information on demographic characteristics, beer buying/drinking behavior, and sustainability preferences, alongside a choice experiment. We find that consumers are willing to pay a price premium for sustainability attributes in beer (under all model specifications).
