Green marketing in the Swedish fashion industry : An explorative study on its effect on consumer trust (English)
Abstract [sv]

Företag verksamma inom modebranschen har idag en stor förväntan från omvärlden att agera hållbart i de handlingar de genomför. De senaste åren har kunskapen från konsumenterna ökat gällande de globala hållbara problemen inom de sociala, ekonomiska och ekologiska sektionerna. I denna studie identifieras hur svenska modeföretag praktiserar hållbar marknadsföring, samt hur faktorerna varumärke, transparens samt greenwashing inom hållbar marknadsföring påverkar förtroendet för modekonsumenter tillhörande generation Y. En teoretisk referensram upprättades med en teoretisk modell om hur de olika faktorerna påverkar förtroendet hos konsumenterna. Data som ligger som underlag till analysen samlades in genom intervjuer med de tre svenska modeföretagen H&M, ARKET och Nudie Jeans samt två fokusgrupper med konsumenter tillhörande generation Y. I analysen framgår det hur de svenska modeföretagen använder sig av direkt respektive indirekt kommunikation av det hållbarhetsarbete som de bedriver. Dessutom framgår det ur studiens analys att varumärke samt transparens påverkar förtroendet från konsumenter i generation Y positivt, men att greenwashing påverkar förtroendet negativt. 

Abstract [en]

Companies that are currently operating in the fashion industry have strong expectations from the outside world to act sustainable in their actions. In recent years, the consumer knowledge regarding the sustainable problems in the social, economic and ecological sectors have increased. This study identifies how Swedish fashion companies practice green marketing, and how brand, transparency and greenwashing as factors in sustainable marketing affect the trust of consumers belonging to generation Y. A theoretical framework was established with a theoretical model on how the various factors affect consumer trust. The data that the analysis of the study was based up on, was collected through interviews with the three Swedish fashion companies H&M, ARKET and Nudie Jeans, as well as two focus groups with consumers belonging to generation Y. The analysis shows how the selected Swedish fashion companies use direct and indirect communication in their sustainability work. Additionally, it is shown from the study's analysis that branding and transparency affect consumer trust positively, but that greenwashing has a negative effect on consumer trust.
