World Consumer Rights Day 2023
Each 15 March the consumer movement unites to highlight a pressing issue facing consumers globally.
This year, the Membership of Consumers International - 200 consumer groups in 100 countries - selected Empowering Consumers Through Clean Energy Transitions as our global theme.
World leaders focused on securing a just transition in the energy sector at COP27 in Egypt. In support of this we are delighted to announce our WCRD 2023 theme will be: Empowering Consumers Through Clean Energy Transitions. Amidst the greatest cost-of-living crisis in a generation and as the energy world drastically responds to supply and climate issues, we have a core role to play in delivering a just transition for consumers.
We will build on the success of our campaign this year where 90+ Members carried out diverse campaigns to promote Fair Digital Finance, sharing our message with millions of consumers worldwide. We also brought together over 600 business, government, regulator and consumer advocacy participants at our Fair Digital Finance Forum - the largest ever consumer focussed dialogue on the issue.
