Hugh Baird College and Hugh Baird College’s Student Association assign great importance to the College’s role within the international community, and therefore commit to supporting, using and promoting Fairtrade.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
The Fairtrade Foundation have outlined five goals for a Fairtrade College, and our commitment to them is as follows:
