An individual or household that purchases and uses products and services. In sustainable management there is a trend to rethink the notion of a consumer who “uses things up” and, instead, strive to serve customers with services that meet their needs without depleting as many resources. In marketing, the trend is to speak of “customers” when addressing specific people and “consumers” only when addressing the market sector (as opposed to government or business customers).
