This paper was presented at the International Business Conference sponsored by the Center of Excellence
in International Business of Northern State University, Aberdeen, South Dakota, USA. Questionnaires
covering issues on the environment and marketing of products were collected from 374 respondents. The
study reveals that respondent awareness of the extent of damage done as a result of economic activity is
steadily growing. Consumers are becoming conscientious of adverse effects and are willing to pay more
for eco-friendly products. Evidence exists that Asian Indians are aware and concerned about the
environment but commitment to take proactive individual action is moderate.
