Nationwide, a third of Hungarians (36%) and nearly half of Budapest residents (49%) do not consider the current operation of stores to be sustainable, according to a joint representative survey by Etele Plaza and market researcher Opinio, writes profitline.hu.

Buyers would make domestic stores and shopping centers greener with solar panels, optimization of cooling and heating systems, and energy-saving lighting.

Those interviewed mostly try to protect the environment with reusable shopping bags. Four out of ten rural and metropolitan respondents (40%) agree that unnecessary or non-recyclable packaging is the most significant environmental waste in stores.

Opinions are also divided as to whether unnecessarily strong cooling and heating (16%), excessive lighting (12%), environmental pollution from transport (12%) or goods procured from unsustainable sources (12%) are the most severe problems.

A third of the respondents (37%) see that the environmental protection attitude of the shop s shows a mixed picture, and only one in 10 (12%) consider their operations sustainable.
