Consumers buying from ethical retailers in the United Kingdom 2014, by social grade

This statistic shows the share of UK consumers agreeing with the statement "I try to buy products from companies that act in an ethical way, even if it means spending more", by social grade. According to the survey, conducted for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in June 2014, 41 percent of respondents in social grade AB (upper middle class) agreed that they try to buy products from ethical retailers, even if it means spending more money. The proportion of those agreeing in the lower social grades tended to be slightly less, with 31 percent of those in social grade DE (working class and non working) also claiming they try to some extent to buy products produced in an ethical way.
