Fairtrade and UN SDG Action Campaign Join Forces in Mobilizing Millions for the Sustainable Development Goals

“Fairtrade has long been at the forefront of the global drive in achieving the SDGs by the 2030 deadline. And, as we all know, that deadline is fast approaching,” said Ms. Uwera.

“Whether it has been through our consolidated efforts in tackling gender inequity and climate change or our targeted approach to addressing economic inequality through our Minimum Price and Premium, Fairtrade remains committed to delivering on the SDGs for farmers, agricultural workers, and consumers around the world,” she continued. “That’s why we’re thrilled to join UN SDG Action Campaign’s mobilization effort as we continue to advocate and act for a fairer future for all.”

“In these challenging times for the world, the power is in our hands to flip the script on climate, justice and peace — which means re-writing the narrative of our times. The UN SDG Action Campaign and its partners have shown that we are stronger together as we can mobilize millions of people to bring about positive change,” Ms. Ponti stated.

“We are proud to welcome Fairtrade International, an organization that truly leads the way in setting fairer and more sustainable standards and is a champion for social justice and decent jobs.”
