Our vision of a just and sustainable global economic system
At FairChange, we think a more just economic system is possible and necessary. We believe we should work together towards a global economy where business profits can be balanced with respect for workers’ rights and the rights of local communities, fair trade and fair income, in a healthy natural environment.
In the international economic system that we envision, profits can be made in a way that drives sustainable development and wellbeing for everyone, everywhere.
