The International Fair Trade Charter

World Fair Trade Organization and Fairtrade International have initiated the process of drafting this Charter in consultation with other actors and with the aim of producing a common reference document for the Global Fair Trade movement. It seeks to help Fair Trade actors explain how their work connects with the shared values and generic approach, and to help others who work with Fair Trade to recognise those values and approaches.

The Charter offers a concise explanation of the generic objectives and approaches that are common to most Fair Trade initiatives. It is not possible for such a document to act as a manual of Fair Trade practices or as a standard by which the approach of specific organizations can be assessed. This document cannot therefore be used to justify the Fair Trade claims or credentials of any organisation, business,or network.
