The Fairtrade India Workplace Program encourages offices and workplaces to recognize the impact of purchasing decisions on sustainability. This program raises awareness of the environmental and community impact behind food, textile and other sourcing decisions made in the workplace. It recognizes workplaces that show a strong commitment to fair trade and empowers the team to contribute to a world where sustainability and trade justice are central to ethical consumption. On weekdays, we work with people whose groups are designed to create more value than the sum of their parts. The workplace brings together more people to work towards a common goal. In an interconnected world, these goals can be both global and local.
