Abstract
Green products have major contribution in changing the mind-set of consumers towards environmental protection, responsible consumption and overall value creation in an ethical manner. Despite efforts from marketers, the adoption of the green products has not been in line with the expectations. Although developed economies have experimented and learned many important cues with respect to the adoption of green products, the emerging economies are still in the transition phase. Using qualitative method, this study explores different psychographic and cultural factors interplaying in the decision-making process for adoption of green products in India. Based on value-belief-norm (VBN) theory, the study then develops a conceptual framework which includes some pertinent factors including a potential moderating factor affecting the adoption of green products. The study provides some important insights for the practitioners and the policy makers.
