Launch of the International Fair Trade Charter

This post is also available in: French, Spanish

Rising inequality, entrenched poverty and a deepening ecological crisis have mobilised the global community to seek new models of business and trade that drive fair and sustainable economies. Over many decades, the Fair Trade movement has developed and implemented a range of models that serve as an experiment in transforming the broader global economy.

The new International Fair Trade Charter enshrines the common vision and fundamental values of the Fair Trade movement to put us on the path to realising the Sustainable Development Goals.

With diverse actors playing actively in the global Fair Trade movement, the Charter serves as the single international reference point for Fair Trade.
