Green Crowdfunding: New Consumer Roles in Sustainable Economy

The current study focuses on green crowdfunding, i.e. crowdfunding for sustainable initiatives. We address the green crowdfunding phenomenon from three perspectives (i.e. funders, founders and platform) and explore how green crowdfunding extends consumers’ roles in sustainable economy. Our findings indicate the critical importance of consumers’ involvement in funding sustainable projects.
