Consumer choices determine the way that companies produce goods for sale. For example, the strong consumer preference for low prices can drive companies to cut production costs whenever possible. However, this behavior may compromise worker’s rights, environmental preservation, and other social responsibilities. Ethical consumerism describes the choice to use products that honor social and environmental priorities. Similarly, corporate social responsibility (CSR) describes the trend of incorporating social and environmental ethics into the overall strategy of a business. With a commitment to the triple bottom line of People, Planet and Profit, a corporation has a moral obligation to protect the very resources it uses. There are several challenges to the management and control of conduct in global supply chains; however, effective CSR can promote sustainable practices in issues ranging from human rights (such as fair wages) to environmental stewardship (such as reducing the CO2 footprint).
