The nature of work is being profoundly reshaped by a number of powerful, inter-connected disruptive forces.

To thrive into the future, businesses need to be thinking about sustainability in every aspect of their business and the world.

Sometimes, these choices are simpler and closer than we think.

What’s the first thing you do when you get into work? Make a coffee? Perhaps tea is more your thing.

This simple act can have a profound impact on the lives of farmers and workers around the world. It boils down to choice, and connecting the dots between the farmer and the products in your workplace kitchen.

By choosing Fairtrade products, you’re telling your team, your clients and associates that you support an environmentally responsible and socially just world. Its leadership in its simplest form.

It is a simple and meaningful way to expand your Corporate Social Responsibility commitment too.

Becoming a Fairtrade supporting workplace is super easy – just source two or more products carrying the Fairtrade Mark. Your suppliers, for example, can usually provide Fairtrade certified tea, coffee, hot chocolate (and more) on request.

How our members lead and navigate with sustainability and the heart of their purpose into the future will be critical to maintaining and strengthening their social license to operate as well as holding us all to higher ethical standards.
