Fairtrade ANZ helps people achieve financial security & obtain more power at the negotiating table, making them less vulnerable to poverty.
Fairtrade’s work is about being fair to the planet too. We must recognise in the face of a changing climate & increased deforestation that sustainability & regeneration is key.
Fairtrade helps farmers, workers & their communities lift themselves out of poverty by providing better prices for their goods and services. Through Fairtrade, producers are able to invest in their businesses, earn a fair income and send their children to school.
Indigenous Art Code
The Indigenous Art Code (known as the Code) is a voluntary industry code of conduct administered by the Indigenous Art Code Ltd (IartC).
The Code is a set of rules and guidelines that dealers (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous businesses) commit to following to ensure ethical practices and fair treatment of artists.
The Code aims to:

In 2002, the Federal Government transferred ownership of the logo to AMCL via a Deed of Assignment and Management, which sets out strict conditions under which AMCL may administer the logo.

Australian Certified Organic Standard
Australia is a developed country that currently does not regulate the use of the word “organic” in product labelling. However, major supermarkets and wholesalers require organic certification to validate organic product claims. So, while you currently may not be legally required to be certified to make organic claims, it is recommended.
Anti Slavery Statement
The Leprosy Mission Australia (TLMA) is not required to submit a statement but has chosen to do so voluntarily as doing so aligns with our organisational values.
TLMA believes our commitment to following Jesus Christ means that we do not want to see people trapped in slavery. We are also aware that modern slavery overwhelmingly impacts people who live in poverty. Many people affected by leprosy are economically disadvantaged and face a higher risk of ending up in slavery. As people living in the light of Jesus, and committed to serving people affected by leprosy, we want to be active participants in preventing slavery.
