This is a really effective chart as it shows consumers how they could shop in a more ethical and sustainable way. I especially like the fact they included eBay as one of the solutions, because sometimes you can find really surprising and wonderful items, good-as-new, for little money! It gives new life to old garments and saves you money, which could be spent of on socialising with good friends!

Sometimes, businesses employ unethical and corrupt practices in order to get ahead of the competition. These unethical practices can take the form of bribery, gifts and the offer of perks. The price of this corruption is estimated at 5% of global GDP - a massive $600 billion. 

Alstom has been committed for a long time to combating this sort of corruption and has made ethics a cornerstone of its business practices. But how can a company with a significant global presence ensure that its ethical code is respected and followed worldwide?

The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal.

In the current 'Game of More', we're told to cheer a growing economy -- more roads, more malls, more Stuff! -- even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting.

But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better -- better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet?

Shouldn't that be what winning means?

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. http://storyofstuff.org

Companies which follow certain business ethics have better chances of survival, as compared with the ones whose only goal is to make profits, even if they have to make several compromises to achieve their goals.
