ESG (SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY)
How FairLife supports social sustainability
FairLife will uplift social sustainability in a way that lasts for generations.
For how fair trading supports social sustainability and wellbeing see: Why we need FairLife.
For how financial education supports social sustainability and wellbeing see: Financial Education – Why improving financial education matters.
For how combining fair trading and financial education turbo-charges both see: Financial Education – Link to fair trading & A Virtuous Circle.
Beyond fair trading and financial education, FairLife further promotes social sustainability by encouraging organisations to consider other areas such as employee wellbeing.
There is an adage that says a decent society cannot be created by laws alone, there must be a moral obligation. The FairLife Charity offers a route to identify specific, peer-agreed ways that the industry can apply this moral obligation above the regulators’ rules and principles.
