Abstract

The basic purpose of this report is highlighting the emerging issue of ethical buying in a growing global market. Ethical consumption is very popular in Western societies as compared to the developing countries. The Western consumer is well aware of the ethical responsibilities of companies, but despite the debates about ethical consumption, this issue remains unpopular in developing nations. This report probes the developments during the last century in relation to ethical consumerism and highlights the advances in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of various organisations around globe. The fair-trade concept, which is of great relevance to ethical consumption, is considered in depth and subsequent recommendations put forward that will improve on the current practices of CSR.
