What does the ethical consumer need to know about the carbon cost of consumption, and the difference Fairtrade makes around the world?

About this event

This event is taking place as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.

As we continue on the journey to net zero, we’ll consider the concerns of ethical businesses and consumers as we take climate action; along with Scotland’s carbon footprint and conscious consumption.

We’ll discuss the hidden emissions in imported food and products, and progress being made towards a fairer footprint for small-scale producers who grow the food we consume.

We’ll also hear from a farmer about the actions they’re taking now to deal with the impact of climate change on their livelihoods, and the environmental, social and economic benefits of Fairtrade.
