Being part of a global company, we strive towards a more sustainable and ethical future. Fairtrade at work fits so well with everything else that we’ve been doing regarding staff engagement and in promoting sustainable living, not only in the workplace but also at home. Our staff experience a wonderful ‘feel good’ factor just by drinking their cup of coffee every morning. What a positive start to a working day.

We know that we are a big player in the market and we can make a difference. Moving to Fairtrade for BNZ was about our commitment to corporate responsibility. We like our actions to speak and we made the change because it is the right thing to do. 

Jessica Rodger, Sustainability Manager at BNZ

 

KPMG NZ was pleased to become a certified Fairtrade workplace in 2014. It wasn’t a hard change to make as we believe purchasing Fairtrade Certified products is better for the growers & farmers, our communities and the environment – so better for all of us. 

Plus the new Fairtrade tea and coffee products we purchase have been received very favourably by our people. Fairtrade aligns well with our New Zealand CSR strategy, our Global commitment to the UN Global Compact and Global partnership with Oxfam, and is one way to encourage our people to support the positive economic principles of Fairtrade. We are also looking at ways of introducing a wider range of Fairtrade products into our business.

Justine Todd, National Operations Manager at KPMG NZ

 

At the Sustainable Business Network we have a strict procurement policy around everything we purchase including a commitment to buying Fairtrade certified coffee, tea, sugar, cocoa and, where possible, fruit such as bananas for our kitchen supplies and catering. In the first instance we purchase Fairtrade products from our members. We believe it’s important to buy Fairtrade to support sustainable businesses all around the world by paying a fair price for producers as well as helping farmers in the Fairtrade system to better care for the communities and environment they live in.
