The Association of Conscious Consumers (ACC) works towards developing proactive communities of individuals to base their consumer decisions with increased awareness, supplementing the usual price-quality considerations with other considerations, such as the environmental and social performance of the manufacturer of a given product, the ecological features thereof or the health related to its consumption.
By influencing the buyer’s behaviour ACC wishes to contribute to socially and environmentally beneficial changes in corporate practices and consumers’ values. We are convinced that conscious consumer decisions can contribute to the creation of a liveable world and an ecologically sustainable economy. In such an economy companies do not strive to earn profit by saving on health and safety or environmental expenses; do not create false needs nor try to convince consumers to buy and accumulate unnecessary products through imposing advertising campaigns. Companies should compete in manufacturing quality, healthy products satisfying genuine demand, as well as in responsible behaviour and prominence.
The above mentioned require that people as consumers develop a new kind of sensitiveness and values that are enforced in their consumer decisions. The general objective of ACC is therefore to assist the development of these new types of consumer values, that is, a new lifestyle and identity.
