This indicates a substantial shift in their perspective, influenced by the pressing climate crisis and affects their purchasing decisions, career choices and long-term family planning. In fact, 80 per cent of Indian parents are willing to pay more for environmentally friendly items.Additionally, 85 per cent of Indian parents prioritise purchasing items that are sustainably sourced. This inclination towards sustainability can be attributed to the environmental challenges, and pollution associated with population growth and urbanisation.When it comes to concerns related to climate change, Indian parents are most concerned about rising temperatures and associated costs.
