Promoting People-Centered Businesses

An enterprise model which puts people and not profit at the heart of business should be enhanced, the conference ‘People-centred businesses: making supply chains work for small producers’ heard.
The event, hosted by MEP Gay Mitchell (EPP - European People's Party), was organized by  Cooperatives Europe and Fair Trade Advocacy Office, and took place in Brussels on 5th June.
“Businesses alone are not enough to tackle poverty; the EU should foster people-centred businesses”, Harriet Lamb, CEO of Fair Trade International, said.
The organizers announced that they support the Commission initiative to work with local private actors (as announced in the Agenda for Change), to which member-owned businesses, which benefit local communities, should be key partners.
Cooperatives Europe is the European cross-sectoral organization representing cooperative enterprises, and The Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) speaks out on behalf of the Fair Trade movement for Fair Trade and Trade Justice with the aim to improve the livelihoods of marginalised producers and workers in the South.
