Thus, raising consumer awareness can reduced environmental impact on the environment, which leads to more sustainable SCs. The aim of this paper is to show how the consumer impact on SCs and to what extent can the environmental impact be reduced. The methodology used in this work is mathematical modelling (optimization), and environmental impacts are set as objective functions. The model was tested on a IT SCs and the result shows that the environmental impact can be significantly reduced by raising consumer awareness and switching to more sustainable products.
