Ethical business for me is to respect the environment. I think that we have to protect the environment.  The climatic changes are in link with us. We are consuming more and more and it affects the world around us. Larges businesses think only about the profit and forget that they are reducing our life expectancy of future generations. I respect a lot the companies who are protecting the environment. They have a lot to gain by helping the environment. Now, the population is more concerned by the repercussions on environment.
