Renfrewshire Council

Fair trade in Renfrewshire

Renfrewshire Council is proud to support Fairtrade across Renfrewshire, in partnership with a range of local organisations. We are fully committed to fairness and sustainability both at home and abroad.

Renfrewshire achieved Fairtrade Zone status in 2009, after a campaign led by Renfrewshire Council and involving local Fairtrade groups, schools, churches and businesses.

The Renfrewshire Fairtrade Steering group exists to increase awareness of fair trade within Renfrewshire and support the renewal of the area's Fairtrade Zone status.

Towns and schools in Renfrewshire are encouraged to earn Fairtrade status through the Fairtrade Towns and Fairtrade Schools awards.
