This month’s edition of Ipsos Update puts a spotlight on ESG (environmental, social, governance) issues. We share our latest insights on designing a holistic sustainable pack strategy and demonstrate the value that ESG commitments can create in terms of stronger customer relationships and desired customer behaviour. We also share new research on the power of inclusive representation in advertising as well as the changing attitudes towards gender equality across the globe.

Also featured this month are the 2023 edition of our Global Happiness Survey, new research into consumption behaviours in MENA during Ramadan and analysis exploring how violence has invaded democracy in recent years.
