Fairtrade in the Square Mile


The City of London Fairtrade Steering Group was formed in 2007 when the City first achieved "Fairtrade Zone" status, awarded by the Fairtrade Foundation.


We are a volunteer group of City residents and workers committed to promoting the use of ethically and fairly sourced products, resources, and materials within the square mile.


If you live or work within the City and want to get involved in our work, please get in touch!
