    by Manish Madhu, B. Madhumitha, G. Sandhya 
    Abstract: Plant-based meat alternatives (PBMA’s) have been studied for years. People are increasingly turning to alternative meats, which taste just like real meat and have proven to have no the negative health affects. As a result, it has become the most researched topic in the food industry these days. Thus, it is important to understand and assess the factors that influence consumers’ willingness to purchase plant-based meat. The purpose of this study is to identify the factors that influence consumers’ willingness to buy PBMA in the Indian markets, to identify awareness as a moderator variable between attitudes and willingness to buy and to uncover the market opportunities for PBMA in India. 223 respondents were part of the study, whose responses were collected through a structured questionnaire. The results showed that sustainability, food curiosity, health consciousness, and consumer awareness have a massive influence on consumer attitude, which increases their propensity to buy.

  • Evaluating environmental, social and governance disclosures: an integrated bibliometric and meta-analysis   Order a copy of this article
    by Bhoomi Mehta, Avani Raval 
    Abstract: Sustainability is getting attention across the globe. Companies received pressure from different stakeholders to adopt more sustainable practices. Many researchers have analysed environmental, social and governance aspects individually but very limited study gave attention to studying all three aspects simultaneously. This study aims to bridge the gap by provide in depth analysis of research on ESG disclosures and its development over time. The study examines 504 Scopus articles extracted from the year 2006 to 2022 by implementing bibliometric analysis along with meta-analysis. Bibliometric analysis highlights growth in production, most influential countries, institutions and most impactful authors and journals. The study also identified three major themes. Meta-analysis on identified themes provides insights into ESG and its related themes. Based on research gap identified, the study proposed a future research framework. This helps researchers, and practitioners in the context of ESG and its related fields.
