This report explores public attitudes to fairness in the context of sustainable consumption and climate change. Evidence from many areas of behaviour suggests that views about fairness can be powerful in driving pro-social behaviours. This research, through a series of focus groups, explored strategies that can tap into people's sense of fairness around sustainable consumption and climate change to see if this could build public support for behaviour change and sustainability policies.
