The distributed use economy is using digital platforms and partially overlaps with sharing, collaborative consumption, and on-demand systems, providing various models of peer-to-peer exchanges of tangible and intangible assets. Distributed use and sharing are believed to demonstrate the triple bottom-line of the sustainable development with focus on environmental, economic and social issues. The behaviour of the distributed use economy users is determined by several main motives: getting pleasure from and enjoying new technologies, realizing users’ views on reasonable consumption, strengthening one’s reputation among members of the community, and obtaining economic benefits. The article presents the results of research of distributed use economy users and the relation of their motives to the values of sustainable development. Online survey and deliberative research sessions revealed the importance of sustainable development values for the young active consumers.
