The 2019 results of the IBE's annual survey of the attitudes of the British public to business ethics.

Every year, the Institute of Business Ethics asks the British public its view on business ethics. This infographic shows the attitudes of the British public to business behaviour in 2019.

Just over half (57%) of the British public now say that they consider British business to behave ethically, compared to 62% last year and 47% in 2003 when the survey was first launched.

The top three issues concerning the public have remained the same in 2019; tax avoidance, executive pay and environmental responsibility.
