Analysis of the producer level impact of Fairtrade on the environment

Published: 23 Dec 2020


Fairtrade International commissioned a study to examine the impact of Fairtrade with regard to environmental protection, biodiversity conservation and adaptation to climate change.

For this purpose, the following three Fairtrade interventions were assessed: Fairtrade Standards (Standard for Small-scale Producer Organizations v1.5 and Hired Labour Standard v1.5), Fairtrade support (trainings, projects) for producer organizations and the use of the Premium.

Fairtrade’s Theory of Change provided the framework for the theory-based contribution analysis.
