Fair Trade Buying from responsible sources
  • Fair Trade Badge
When purchasing goods and services for an organisation, cost and convenience matter, but so does sustainability. By researching procurement options that are socially and environmentally responsible – and asking the same of our suppliers – we can have a positive influence along the supply chain.

How to earn this badge

For guidance and tools to support responsible purchasing, see Green Street’s Sustainable Procurement resource.

If you do all three of these, you will earn a Fair Trade Badge.

  1. We buy goods from sources where workers are paid a reasonable wage
  2. We buy goods from sources where human rights are observed
  3. We buy goods from environmentally friendly workplaces
