Faire Beschaffung - Fair Procurement

"Fair procurement" means that tax money is not invested in exploitative working conditions.

In other words, schools, universities, offices and ministries have to purchase products such as coffee, uniforms, computers and stones produced in compliance with fundamental labor rights. If the federal government, states and communities make their purchase socially fair, they contribute to better working conditions and a reduction of global poverty. Further, they are a role model for businesses and consumers. The Website provides information for supporters as well as for purchasers.
