The Role of Ethical Evaluation in the Purchasing of High-Involvement Eco-Innovations

We propose a new approach to marketing decision ethics (usually focused on communication issuers) by implementing Hunt and Vitell (1986)'s theoretical model for ethical decision-making processes, in order to explain consumers' purchasing behavior of high-involvement eco-innovations, linking deontological and teleological reasoning to variables related to pro-environmental purchasing.
