Ensure public sector commitment to being a Fair Trade Nation
Ensure that public sector bodies are contributing to Scotland’s commitment to being a Fair Trade Nation.
Scotland became a Fair Trade Nation in 2013.
Public sector organisations should use their position to promote Fair Trade through their policies, procurement, outreach activities, workplace practices and training.
