The conclusion of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development by the member states of the United Nations on 25th September three years ago marked the start of an ambitious plan of action to safeguard the future of the planet. The key elements of the agenda are the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). 

The challenge of shaping the future of our food supply in a sustainable manner in the global context has been a motivating concern of Naturland for the past 35 years. Organic agriculture and fair trade have indeed made a major contribution to Agenda 2030. They are components important to the implementation of the future agenda in meeting the social, ecological and economic challenges by means of global co-operation.

The World Fair Trade Organization and Fairtrade International have prepared this charter as a joint project involving other parties engaged in fair trade. The charter lays down the basic principles of fair trade and defines a common vision for the implementation of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. The FLO and WFTO had first agreed to draw up a charter for fair trade back in 2009. The charter covers the major principles, definitions and policies of fair trade upon which certification to the Naturland Fair standards are also based.
