    • Abstract:
      Contemporary western consumption patterns are related to a range of sustainability issues such as air and water pollution, loss in biodiversity, animal welfare and fair prices. Sustainability is a multifaceted concept and in the context of food, it comprises environmental aspects, animal welfare issues and ethical working conditions. Technological progress has long been viewed as the solution to sustainability problems in the food domain, but the importance of consumption levels has recently received particular attention. This thesis will contribute to a better understanding of sustainable food consumption practices and thereby supports a shift towards more sustainable diets. The overall aim of this research is to identify and provide insights into consumer lifestyle segments regarding sustainable food consumption. In researching consumer motivations and behaviors concerning sustainable food consumption, it is important to take the heterogeneity of consumers into account. One way to deal with heterogeneity is through consumer segmentation. Consumers can be segmented in many ways, but we emphasize the importance of lifestyle segmentation. Lifestyle variables are crucial in understanding why consumers behave like they do. Lifestyles provide cognitive insights into consumers, are closely related to behavior and are useful in developing communication strategies. Overall, the research presented in this thesis contributes to a better understanding of sustainable food consumption and thereby supports a shift towards more sustainable diets.
