What We Do

FTAO mission: to speak out on behalf of the Fair Trade movement for Fair Trade and Trade Justice with the aim to improve the livelihoods of marginalised producers and workers in the South.

FTAO vision: a world in which justice and sustainable development are at the heart of trade structures and practices so that everyone, through their work, can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood and develop their full human potential

FTAO Scope of work: the FTAO is a joint political advocacy office by and for the Fair Trade movement. It is part of the Fair Trade movement political advocacy work, yet it does not aim however at coordinating all global Fair Trade movement advocacy activities.

The FTAO focuses its coordination on the Fair Trade movement´s political advocacy work on EU policies and EU input into global policies linked to the achievement of the goals and objectives laid down in the present strategic plan.
