All employees are aware of the Fair Trade commitment of the business and are clear about their roles and responsibilities in the implementation thereof

What does this mean?

  • Employees need to be part of the business’ sustainability journey.  As such they need to be aware of the business’ commitment to Fair Trade in Tourism and also understand what this means.
  • It is advisable to give employees regular updates about how the business is doing in terms of its sustainability goals and to involve them in the process. This will also assist the business to communicate Fair Trade to its guests through its employees.
  • Employees should also be made to understand what their roles and responsibilities are in this journey.

What do I do?

  • FTT offers a Sustainable Tourism workshop to educate employees on the principles thereof.
  • It is recommended that FTT-certified businesses conduct this workshop for their employees on a regular basis.
