This approach aims to understand their perspective on the role of government, states, and educational institutions in promoting sustainability. It also seeks to evaluate the existing communication and educational strategies within the university concerning the SDGs.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The findings reveal a significant gap in communication and guidance related to the SDGs within the institution and among students. While most students possess a basic understanding of the SDGs, they acknowledge a need for enhanced efforts from governments and educational institutions in sustainability strategies. Furthermore, students advocate for the university to assume a leadership role in integrating sustainability into its methodology, practical exercises, and research activities.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions:</strong> The study concludes that there is an urgent need for improved communication and educational initiatives regarding the SDGs at Unicentro. By fostering a collaborative environment that encourages sustainability practices, higher education institutions can play a pivotal role in achieving the SDGs. This involves developing innovative educational tools and methodologies that not only enhance student awareness and engagement but also contribute to societal well-being and environmental sustainability.</p> </div> </div> </div> Silvio Roberto Stefani, Marcio Dias de Souza, Andi Rian Silveira , Letícia Padilha de Liz , Marcia Aparecida Zampier Copyright (c) 2024 Silvio Roberto Stefani, Marcio Dias de Souza, Andi Rian Silveira , Letícia Padilha de Liz , Marcia Aparecida Zampier https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1572 Tue, 12 Mar 2024 00:00:00 -0300 The challenges for gender diversity and inclusion in the wind energy industry and the ESG perspective of organizations https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1584 <p><strong>Context: </strong>Gender Diversity and Inclusion (D&amp;I) has been a challenge for the energy and renewable energy industry. The wind energy industry has carried out a series of practices and initiatives to fulfil ESG criteria - environmental, social and governance, however the topic of D&amp;I is still a paradigm for sector organizations.</p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Objective:</strong> This paper aims to present how the wind industry can promote D&amp;I to meet ESG criteria, specifically, mapping industry challenges to promote D&amp;I practices.</p> <p><strong>Method:</strong> The research methodology is a qualitative case study with 10 semi-structured interviews from different executive and managerial positions in organizations in the wind energy sector.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The results demonstrated that there are a series of challenges and some ongoing practices, but the gap between these practices and initiatives and the culture of organizations is still a sectoral bottleneck.</p> <p><strong>Contribution:</strong> The scientific and practical contribution of the research lies in presenting a kaleidoscope with 5 main challenges for continuing the discussion of D&amp;I in companies, as well as 10 practices reported by interviewees that unfold into a roadmap for the global wind sector.</p> Matheus Eurico Soares de Noronha, Juliana de Almeida Yanaguizawa Lucena, Felipe Vieira da Silva, Letícia Jahn Souza Copyright (c) 2024 Matheus Eurico Soares de Noronha, Juliana de Almeida Yanaguizawa Lucena, Felipe Vieira da Silva, Letícia Jahn Souza https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1584 Tue, 12 Mar 2024 00:00:00 -0300 An Empirical Analysis of Eco-Conscious Consumer Behaviors and Their Impact on the Decision-Making Process for Running Shoes: The Moderating Role of Runner Profiles https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1590 <div class="flex flex-grow flex-col max-w-full"> <div class="min-h-[20px] text-message flex flex-col items-start gap-3 whitespace-pre-wrap break-words [.text-message+&amp;]:mt-5 overflow-x-auto" data-message-author-role="assistant" data-message-id="72a5578a-85a9-48e9-b6c0-6ed4817c3fc8"> <div class="markdown prose w-full break-words dark:prose-invert light"> <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> This study investigates the impact of green consumer values and eco-conscious consumption on the decision-making process for purchasing and disposing of running shoes, emphasizing the moderating role of the runner's profile.</p> <p><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach:</strong> This research employs a quantitative survey methodology and analyzes the data using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). The model incorporates the runner's profile—which includes running frequency, duration, and its integration into the individual's lifestyle—as a moderating factor.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> The study reveals a complex interplay between environmental values and consumer habits, which is moderated by the individual running profiles, influencing the purchasing and disposal decisions of running shoes.</p> <p><strong>Practical Implications:</strong> The insights from this study can aid companies in tailoring sustainable practices and products to different segments of runners, thereby enhancing environmental stewardship within the domain of sports consumerism.</p> <p><strong>Originality/Value:</strong> This research contributes to the existing body of knowledge by uniquely integrating consumer environmental values, habits, and individual athletic profiles within the context of purchasing and disposal decisions for sports equipment.</p> </div> </div> </div> Jones Ribeiro , Marcelo L.

The sample comprised potential consumers of sustainable products, gathered via a survey.</p> <p><strong>Main Results:</strong> The research validated all proposed hypotheses, providing evidence of the necessity level concerning the variables of information, attitude, and sustainable marketing strategies for the realization of sustainable consumption.</p> <p><strong>Relevance/Originality:</strong> Despite an increasing body of research on sustainability, a gap remains in understanding the divergence in the consumption of sustainable products. This investigation stands out as pioneering work in determining the levels of necessity for predictors that are expected to delineate the relationship between attitude, intention, and behavior.</p> <p><strong>Theoretical/Methodological Contributions:</strong> This study enhances the current understanding of the gap between attitude and intention towards the consumption of sustainable products by identifying the necessary conditions for antecedents of sustainable consumption. It introduces a novel perspective by specifying the occurrence levels of predictor variables.</p> </div> </div> </div> Flávio Santino Bizarrias , Jussara da Sila Teixeira Cucato , Marlette Cassia Oliveira Ferreira , Jussara Goulart da Silva Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1591 Mon, 18 Mar 2024 00:00:00 -0300 Sustainable development insights: synergizing publishing and academic research to propel SDGs Forward https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1589 <p><strong>Objective:</strong> To explore the integral roles of the publishing industry and Scopus, an academic research tool, in supporting and advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).</p> <p><strong>Method:</strong> Qualitative analysis focusing on the impact of publishing on SDG awareness, the evolution of the SDG Publishers Compact, Scopus's role in integrating SDGs, and the broader implications of these initiatives.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Identification of challenges and opportunities in implementing the Compact's objectives, highlighting the importance of collaborative research efforts to tackle complex global challenges, with special emphasis on Scopus's inclusion of SDGs.</p> <p><strong>Practical Implications:</strong> Highlights the synergistic impact of publishing and academic tools in advancing the sustainable development agenda, suggesting the need for collaboration among publishers, researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions:</strong> The integration of SDGs into the publishing industry and academic tools represents a significant step forward in the global effort to achieve sustainable development, emphasizing the importance of information and knowledge in fostering a more informed, engaged, and proactive global community.</p> Altieres de Oliveira Silva, Diego dos Santos Janes Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://sdgsreview.org/LifestyleJournal/article/view/1589 Thu, 21 Mar 2024 00:00:00 -0300
