The environment and its protection occupy an increasingly significant part of our quotidian. The safety actions of our environment are growing, thus we can see the development of the selective sorting, green transport (bus functioning with gas for example), the removal of the plastic bags at cashiers' desks etc. This tendency was initiated mainly by the citizens and NGO and it starts to be used by companies. By convictions or for not being late, many companies change their modes of production and consumption, and are thus becoming increasingly attentive to the respect of the environment. This green "turn" can be used to sell more, Green Marketing puts in its appearance. This dissertation will be divided into three main parts. The first part will deal with general considerations about environment and responsible consumption, in order to settle the actual context, including a brief historical and explanation of the evolution on these subjects.

[...] Consequently, distributors create partnership with brands and multiply marketing actions in order to dissociate themselves and to improve their image. As environment is popular today, it could be a way to improve distributors' quality approaches. It would be long term commitments, contrary to short term commercial actions, with settings which would last for few years. This could be the next evolution stage just after the apparition of a ?consumption universe? and of subsidiary services. In order to show the importance of taking interest in environment for companies and thus for distributors, Mrs. [...]
