Quick view of the model (open complete model with iMODELER):


A collaborative qualitative model that goes into more detail on the question how we as a society can get companies with more ethical behavior. A factor that pops up in the Volkswagen model by Emma: 

but also when we think about FIFA or all the lobbyist's work from the oil industry (there is the BP memo from the eighties that described the strategy to prevent the information of the public on the likelihood of a climate change) or the nutrition industry  (that prevents that the food in the supermarket shelves is labeled with regard to their nutrition, fat and sugar value) and so forth.

and what an important and profound model you have provided:

This model tackles a problem, which is ubiquitous indeed. I will come up with a model, which does some steps in the psychological domain and may be integrated here.
Some remarks:
I think, the term "unethical products" does not fit perfectly. Weapons are  candidates, but nice looking t-shirts or excellent designed smartphones are not unethical, but the way they are produced often is dangerous for the laborers and / or the environment. Many of us enjoy the products, and the use is not unethical per se (in contrast to weapons – here there is a justification necessary). And because the smartphone does not tell the story of its production, we are not remembered of the story we learnt elsewhere.
Also many consumers know about that too and nevertheless buy products manufactured in these deleterious ways (so do I, sometimes).
