It will show your staff and customers that you’re committed to sustainability, giving you a strong profile in your local community. Through your commitment to ethical procurement, you will contribute to Wales’s Future Generations Act; creating a globally responsible Wales – putting your company on the world stage as a result of your positive impact on the producers of the commodities you work with; playing an active part in the bid to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

 -Better prices

 -Decent working conditions

 -Local sustainability

-Fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in developing countries
