MSP and MP support for the International Fair Trade Charter

On 25 September 2018, the Forum united with 250 organisations around the world to announce the launch of the new International Fair Trade Charter.

The Charter sets down the fundamental values of Fair Trade and defines a common vision towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Charter was initiated by Fairtrade International and the World Fair Trade Organization and leading figures from both networks were in Edinburgh to celebrate its launch. Read more about the launch here.

During the launch event several MSPs pledged their support for the Charter and we are now looking for more MSPs to join the cause.

If you are an MSP, we would appreciate it if you could join your fellow Members of the Scottish Parliament in pledging support for Fair Trade and the new International Fair Trade Charter.

If you are a constituent and you would like to see your MSPs support the Charter and the Fair Trade movement, please contact your MSPs and encourage them to pledge their support.

You can find your constitency and regional MSPs using this page on the Scottish Parliament website.
