Summary

Fairtrade works with over 1500 farmer organisations in high-risk areas. Many farmer organisations have not yet heard about human rights and environmental due diligence (HREDD) – but have for long been implementing due diligence activities on human rights and the environment. Value is distributed inequally in many global supply chains, and farmer organisations often have very limited resources for HREDD work. International HREDD guidelines recognise, that these organisations’ HREDD work may be limited in scale and complexity (UNGP 14) and buyers should support this work (UNGP 22). Therefore, this guide aims to offer advice and tools that are clear and feasible for farmer organisations to implement.
