What Do Consumer Demands Have to Do With the Market for “Green?”

For well over 20 years the wood products industry has been asking the question: “Do customers really care about green?,” And, more recently, making the statement: “No one is asking for certified wood, so why should I offer it?” Consistently, underlying the industry reticence to embrace green practices is the primary excuse that “customers aren’t requesting it, so why should I offer something they so obviously don’t want (otherwise they’d ask – right?).” Perhaps, however, the truth is that customers rarely request new products and waiting for them to do so puts your company out of the running.
