Six things you didn’t know about Fairtrade
Since the late 1980s, Fairtrade has been working to ensure a fair deal for farmers and workers around the world. Under the system, producers of everything from coffee and flowers to makeup and clothing are guaranteed workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay. This in turn leads to wider positive change, such as developing women in leadership and investing in climate-friendly farming techniques. Today, there are more than 1.9 million farmers and workers in Fairtrade certified producer organisations across 71 countries, making products for small businesses and massive brands alike. Obtaining certification to display the Fairtrade logo on products is a rigorous process, with companies having to meet a strict set of criteria that proves their products are up to Fairtrade’s high standards. So every time you purchase a Fairtrade product you can be sure you’re having a positive impact on the world. To celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, which runs from 21 February to 6 March, we’ve unearthed a few lesser-known facts about Fairtrade, guaranteed to get you thinking about your purchasing power.
Celebrating Female Leaders in Sustainability
The world has been hammered by crises over the past 18 months – chief among them, of course, the global pandemic. But while nations around the globe have been united in the shared challenges of COVID-19 some countries have fared better than others, and they have something in common: women leaders. As a study by the Centre for Economic Policy and World Economic Forum shows, countries led by women had “systemically and significantly better” outcomes relating to the pandemic. This success highlights what women have known for a long time: gender diversity is absolutely vital in the global leadership mix. And it’s absolutely vital in the face of our biggest and ongoing global emergency: climate change – especially as studies consistently show that women are more impacted by the climate crisis than men. Women’s voices are vital in the fight against global warming because they are uniquely placed to be changemakers, expanding the possibilities of a sustainable future through foresight, strength and wisdom. And this is more important than ever as the world now looks to ‘build back better’. So to celebrate the launch of our brand new ‘Female-Led’ ethyBadge, we’re championing seven pioneering women making waves in sustainability – from activists and environmentalists to CEOs and politicians – and who are making the world a better place for all of us.
