Purchasing Policies Webinar – Save the Date!
Get your town or campus to institutionalize Fair Trade purchasing!
In 2012 we rolled out Fair Trade Purchasing Policies in two towns and two colleges in the U.S. and we have used the results to construct new resources that will help campaigns across the country institutionalize Fair Trade purchasing!
- Model Procurement Policy
- Opportunity Assessment – for the Fair Trade Purchaser
- Organizer Guides – for the Fair Trade Organizer
Following the testing of purchasing policies, Fair Trade Campaigns built an Opportunity Assessment for procurement officials to ease the transition to Fair Trade products. We also created a guide for organizers to help them figure out where their city/town/college/university is purchasing products that could be Fair Trade and who the individual is that will institute the policy.
On the webinar we’ll review the following:
- What a purchasing policy is and why it is important
- Fair Trade Campaigns Resources and Support
- Experience from the Field: Hear from our Purchasing Policy Pilots
