The Sustainable Trade Champions good practice report 2019 showcases inspiring and replicable practices by EU cities that help advance sustainable trade, consumption,and production.

Drawn exclusively from the  ‘EU Cities for Fair and Ethical Trade Award2019’ (first edition), the report contains local and international stories of positive change for consumers locally and producers globally. 


The publication clearly highlights the role cities, as global trade and consumption centres, can play in the achievement of SDG 12 on responsible consumption and production and other sustainable development goals. The report can also help inspire all city stakeholders, including city officials, businesses, civil society organizations, and educational institutions to embark on their own path towards sustainable trade, consumption, and production.

The report also supports cities interested in applying for the next Award by providing them with practical examples that fall within the scope of the Award, thus helping them to complete their application. 

The report was createdby the International Trade Centre (UN/WTO) and its Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) Programme

The EU Cities for Fair and Ethical Trade Award is an initiative of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Trade implemented by the International Trade Centre.
