Ethical trading involves trading different things to different people. In particularly, ethical trading is an umbrella term for all kinds of business practices that are socially responsible and shield the environment and the worker's rights. It looks beyond economic aims to consider broader implications of one's business decisions.
Today, more than six million people - farmers, producers, workers and their families - in 70 countries benefit from the unique, independent Fairtrade system. Fairtrade provides farmers and workers in developing countries with a fair price (the Fairtrade Price) for their produce, helping protect them from damaging fluctuations in world market prices. They also receive an additional sum of money (the Fairtrade Premium) for investment in social, economic and environmental development in their community, such as educational and medical facilities. Fairtrade Certification standards also prohibit the use of forced and abusive child labour.
Fairtrade delivers a better deal for farmers and producers in the developing world through:
-- A fair and stable price for their produce.
-- Security of long-term contracts.
-- Investment in local community development.
-- Improved working conditions.
-- Environmentally sustainable farming methods.
-- Support in gaining the knowledge and skills needed to operate successfully in the global economy.
