From combatting human rights abuses to protecting animal rights, boycotts exert economic pressure on some of the biggest companies to change their practices. They have seen repeated successes and played an important role in ethical consumption since the movement to boycott South African products during the Apartheid in the 1980s.
In this list we provide information on some of the world's best-known boycott campaigns, from Israel to Nestlé, along with information about our Amazon boycott.
Inclusion in the list does not necessarily mean endorsement by Ethical Consumer. If you would like to suggest a boycott call for inclusion on the list, please contact us and also read our article on starting a boycott.
The last full update of the list was in February 2023.
