Policy and Campaigns

Traidcraft’s policy and advocacy work

Traidcraft’s policy team campaigns for change. We lobby governments, and work with businesses and institutions, to deliver policies that ensure a fairer deal for people in developing countries.

What we do:

  • We conduct research and monitor developments in trade, investment and business practice.

  • We lobby those with the power to make a difference.

  • We encourage our supporters to campaign for change.
     

Working with partners from around the world, here are some of the things we have achieved:

  • UK companies have to report publicly on their impact on local communities and the environment.
  • Delayed the damaging trade agreements between Europe and some of the world's poorest countries.

  • An independent watchdog was set up with the power to fine supermarkets for abusive practices towards their suppliers.
