FAIR TRADE SUNY GENESEO
One of SUNY Geneseo’s seven stated values is to promote “…the development of ethical citizens.” To be an ethical citizen, one must realize the importance in fair business practices. SUNY Geneseo is also committed to working together “…to develop socially responsible citizens…” If we can stand by products that we consume daily (coffee, tea, sugar, bananas, chocolate) with confidence, we have become just that – a socially responsible citizen.
