Mission Statement

Fair World Project advocates fair trade for small-scale producers and labor justice for workers around the world.
We educate and advocate for a just global economy where: people are treated fairly with dignity; the environment is respected and nourished; commerce fosters sustainable livelihoods and communities in a global society based on cooperation and solidarity; fair market opportunities and fair government and trade policy defend, and support the contributions of farmers, workers, and artisans to our global society; marketing claims have integrity and promote throughout entire supply chains, and support dedicated brands that put people before profits.

Description

The goal of Fair World Project is to contribute to the movement to build a just economy that benefits and empowers all people, especially those traditionally marginalized in our current system, including family-scale farmers, small-scale artisans, and food and apparel workers.
Fair World Project educates consumers, retailers, manufacturers, and marketers regarding:
  • The standards, criteria, and possible fair-washing behind claims of fairness and justice on products they produce, sell, and/or consume, including understanding the benefits and limitations of third-party verifications.
  • The ways government and international trade policies support or inhibit a just economy.
  • Key issues, theories, initiatives, policies, and campaigns related to fair trade, family-scale farmers globally, labor justice, sweat-free apparel, and trade and agriculture policy.
Fair World Project works to pressure companies to:
  • Improve sourcing and labor practices by obtaining fair trade, fair labor or other appropriate certification for major supply chains; make only authentic eco-social market claims, and support public policies that benefit small-scale producers and workers.
