Fairtrade at Work is an international programme to add to your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) portfolio; whether your company is well-versed in the world of sustainability, or a newbie wanting to contribute to the promotion of equality and sustainability.
The programme encourages and incentivises local businesses to use Fairtrade products in their canteens and kitchens. The programme is also a great option for churches, NGOs and universities who want to change the world through their everyday actions.
