Climate Justice

Those in developing nations are suffering the most from climate change yet contributing the least. Our global workers and producers, who provide us with our essential food and drink, are already experiencing first-hand the devastating impact of changing weather patterns and emergence of pests and diseases that devastate crops.

It is important that we support all our growers and producers in the transition to fairer and more resilient supply chains that we need to make in the years to come. Fairtrade farmers and workers worldwide have told us that climate change is the biggest threat to their livelihoods. That’s why they must be at the centre of decision making. They know best how climate change is affecting their environment, and what action is needed to safeguard their futures Our Co-op vision, ‘Co-operating for a fairer world’, recognises that we are stronger and more effective when we work together. To create real, impactful change, we need to co-operate to protect our most vulnerable communities against climate change.
