If you feel that the world of Fair Trade has its very own language – do not worry! With this glossary we would like to guide you through the specific technical terms used by FLOCERT, Fairtrade International and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).

Code of conduct / code of practice

A code of conduct or code of practice, in the context of ethical trading, is a set of rules concerning labour practices adopted by a company. The code should apply internationally, and, in particular, to the labour practices of its suppliers and subcontractors.

Find out how FLOCERT can help develop and verify such a code.
