About the new International Fair Trade Charter

On 25 September 2018, the Forum united with 250 organisations around the world to launch an 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. 

If you are a member of an organisation, we ask you to urge your organisation to support the Charter. You can also:
