Fairtrade is unique. Farmers and workers have an equal say in everything we do. Empowerment is at the core of who we are.
We have a vision: a world in which all producers can enjoy secure and sustainable livelihoods, fulfill their potential and decide on their future.
Our mission is to connect disadvantaged farmers and workers with consumers, promote fairer trading conditions and empower farmers and workers to combat poverty, strengthen their position and take more control over their lives.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) mission is the development, implementation, verification, protection and promotion of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
This standard stipulates requirements throughout the supply chain for both ecology and labour conditions in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials.
Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides and fertilizers. In addition, organic production relies on adequate animal husbandry and excludes genetic modification.
