Abstract [sv]

I takt med att världshandeln ökar så ökar även transporterna. Med hjälp av internet har det blivit enklare än någonsin att beställa en vara som skickas från andra sidan jordklotet. Detta arbete har undersökt i vilken utsträckning konsumenter reflekterar över vilka effekter deras beställningsvanor vid varubeställningar får för miljön och hur intresserade de är av att värna om miljön genom att beställa varor med hjälp av en dyrare och mer miljövänlig frakt. Detta har gjorts genom intervjuer med fyra konsumenter i varierande åldrar där det undersökts vad deras inställning är till en dyrare och miljövänligare frakt, hur mycket mer de skulle vilja betala för en sådan frakt samt även vad de vet om det miljöarbete som bedrivs inom sjöfart. Resultatet visar att det finns ett intresse att betala ett högre pris för en mer miljövänlig frakt om priset är överkomligt och om det finns ett förtroende för den som erbjuder den miljövänligare frakten. Viljan skiljer sig mellan de olika respondent och är beroende på vad det är för typ av vara och vad den ordinarie frakten kostar. Respondenterna visar också begränsad kunskap inom sjöfart och det miljöarbete som görs inom branschen.

Abstract [en]

The world trade is increasing rapidly and so is the amount of transportation. With help of the internet it is now easier than ever to order a product which will be sent from the other side of the world. This study aims to investigate to which extent consumers consider what effects their behaviour will have on the environment and how interested they are in protecting the environment when ordering products by paying a higher price for a more environmentally friendly transport. This is done by conducting four interviews with customers of different age and asking questions about their attitudes towards a more expensive and environment friendly transport. More specifically, questions were asked about how much more they would be willing to pay for that kind of transport. Furthermore, questions were asked about what they know about the work that is being done and has been done to reduce the effects on the environment caused by shipping. The result shows that they are willing to pay a higher price for a more environmentally friendly transport. For this to be possible the price needs to be affordable and they need to have a trust in the company offering this kind of transport. There are differences among the interviewed persons in how much they are willing to pay depending on what product they are buying and what the cost is for the original transport cost. This study also shows that the respondents have a very limited knowledge about the work that is being done and has been done to benefit the environment within the shipping business.
