"Fair for life" is a brand neutral third party certification programme for social accountability and fair trade in agricultural, manufacturing and trading operations. The programme complements existing fair trade certification systems
Social accountability and fair trade have become important indicators to select business partners in a global market place. Existing systems unfortunately exclude many agricultural, manufacturing and trading operations worldwide that practice social responsibility and fair trade from independent verification and certification of their performance.
The Fair for Life Social & FairTrade Certification Programme offers operators of socially responsible projects a solution for objective inspection and certification by a highly qualified external verifier. It combines strict social and fair trade standards with adaptability to local conditions.
Socially responsible and fair trade operators also need to take care to protect the environment at and around their production or processing sites. For this reason, the ‘Fair for Life’ programme includes detailed environmental criteria.
