auf der SustainIT 2017 in Funchal, Portugal

Im Rahmen der fünften IFIP Conference on Sustainable Internet and ICT for Sustainability präsentierten wir einen WiP-Beitrag zu den Anforderungen potenzieller Nutzer an einen digitalen Kassenzettel und den Möglichkeiten, die erfassten Daten für nachhaltige Verbraucher-Apps zu verwenden.

The Internet of Things is greatly changing the buying and consuming behavior. Future scenarios of smart shopping, smart kitchen and smart cooking become increasingly real and integrated. In this context we see current attempts of creating digital receipts in the food retailing industry. Respectively to these attempts, this paper shows that consumers expect a number of added values from the digital receipt, e.g. a higher transparency for a better self-reflection, therefore a more sustainable food consumption and more information about the bought products. We conducted qualitative interviews to find out how people use receipts and what added values they can imagine in terms of a digital receipt to improve their consumption behavior and to reduce food waste. Since all bought products will be registered digitally, it becomes possible to use the shopping data for sustainable consumer apps.
