Association of Conscious Consumers (ACC) - Tudatos Vásárlók Egyesülete

 

The Hungarian Association of Conscious Consumers (ACC) aims to create awareness and changes on the effects of consumption patterns of individuals and businesses on the economy, the environment and human health.

 

The vision of ACC is to assist the development of changes in consumer behaviour contributing to the creation of a sustainable economy where companies compete in manufacturing quality, socially and environmentally responsible products satisfying genuine demand.

 

The team behind ACC consist of a large group of professionals, including economists, engineers, marketers, sociologists, lawyers, geographers, anthropologists and agricultural engineers. Together they try to influence companies, policy makers and politicians on a local, national and international level. In order to reach as many people as possible ACC also organizes exhibitions, events and trade fairs.

 

To inform consumers in the best way possible, ACC publishes a quarterly magazine 'Tudatos Vásárló' (Conscious Consumer). This is not only a quarterly printed magazine but also an online reference magazine for consumers, researchers, NGOs and other stakeholders taking part in responsible consumption issues. The online magazine and website include a corporate accountability database which rates companies on their social and environmental performance in four main areas including the environment, animal welfare and people welfare.

 

ACC is a founding member and coordinator of the ‘Ecological Consumer Protection Working Group’, as well as of the ’Fair World - Fair Trade Alliance’ created in 2005 to promote fair trade.
