Toluna launches 153,000 member ethical and organic online research panel Tuesday 5 June 2007 PDF Print Toluna GreenConsumer has been launched in direct response to growing demand for green and ethical consumer research studies across both fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and automotive sectors. The specialist panel, currently with over 153,000 panel community members profiled, is confidently promoted by Toluna as the world’s primary source of online research sample for ethical and green consumer studies. Members of the 20 European and international Toluna panel communities are regularly encouraged to update their profiling information which has been developed in consultation with some of Toluna’s largest research agency clients. Toluna GreenConsumeris now able to provide marketing and research professional’s access to niche ‘green’ targets such as high weekly spenders on fair trade and organic FMCG products, as well as consumers of specific products such as organic chocolate, yoghurt and even fair trade honey. According to Frederic-Charles Petit, CEO, Toluna plc,”Toluna GreenConsumer has been developed in direct response to the demand for organic and fair trade consumer studies. Toluna GreenConsumer is part of our strategy to create value for our clients by providing them with instant access to niche targets across multiple sectors.” Toluna GreenConsumer also provides marketing and research professionals with access to individuals who are currently considering or who have actually purchased fuel cell / hybrid cars as well as individuals who have opted deliberately to use public transport for ‘green’ political reasons. Also profiled are members of green political and charitable organisations as well as individuals who recycle specific types of materials.
