Now is the time for change
We are at a critical moment in history. Since trade began, people have always been exploited. This isn’t just part of the game, it’s a real problem. A bad deal could mean not having enough food for you and your family, not being able to fix critical farming equipment or invest in your business.
On top of that – climate change is here. It manifests as rampant plant diseases, changing weather patterns, droughts, fires, unpredictable harvests – the list goes on, and continues to grow. Climate change threatens not only crops, but also the lives and livelihoods of millions of farmers around the world.
Take time this month to learn about products you use every day, and how you can make them more sustainable.
Fairtrade collaborates directly with farmers
We take a holistic approach to all of our work – and our climate related work is no exception. We fight for the planet through rigorous standards (25% of which are related to the environment), increasing farmer resources through our unique pricing model, and by connecting farmers to best practices.
Fairtrade farmers are part of a network of nearly 2 million farmers & workers that are battling many of the same climate related challenges. Connecting farmers to each other, to regional experts in Producer Networks and outside partners accelerates collaborative adaptation and mitigation.
Over the past three years,10,000 coffee farmers in Kenya participated in training through the Fairtrade Climate Academy. From farming techniques to converting to renewable energy to raising awareness among community leaders, this program has had a tangible impact on both the success of the farms and the lives of the people who cultivate coffee.
