It’s so important our Fairtrade community speaks up in conversations about how to tackle the climate crisis.
Because the people behind our foods and goods can and must be part of building the fairer, greener, low-carbon world we all want.
But centuries of unfair trade means governments and businesses in countries like the UK need to make major financial commitments now, so farmers and workers can earn enough to take on the climate crisis they face, and build a sustainable future for their communities.
As hosts of the G7 summit in June and the COP 26 climate summit this Autumn, the UK has the chance to lead the world this year. To convince the world’s wealthiest nations that it’s time to take responsibility for the climate crisis they have largely caused, and that those farmers and workers living with the consequences of climate change must have the power to shape a better future.
