KPMG does its bit for Fairtrade

Hosts business breakfast for Fairtrade products

A business breakfast hosted by KPMG today, will urge
FTSE 100 companies to purchase
Fairtrade products.

The event will be hosted by senior partner Ian Barlow, and attended by key
FTSE 100 decision makers with the guest of honour being
Lord Mayor of
London, Alderman John Stuttard
who will be joined by Fairtrade Foundation’s
Harriet Lamb as a speaker.

Ian Barlow said: ‘Adopting Fairtrade products is one straightforward way in
which companies can make a social impact. KPMG spends £250,000 each year on
Fairtrade products. If every large company did the same, it would have a huge
impact.’

London is aiming to become the first “International Fairtrade City”. There
are currently 14 boroughs in London with the Fairtrade label. In order to become
an official Fairtrade city, London needs 17.

KPMG adopted a Fairtrade products purchasing policy in 2003 which includes
buying Fairtrade tea, coffee and wines for corporate hospitality and a wider
range of Fairtrade products for employee consumption in staff shops/canteens.
