amfori launched its first digital annual report (2018-2019). Focussing on the theme “Supporting People, Planet and Prosperity”, the publication showcases the organisations’ pioneering programmes and initiatives that are building a better world of open and sustainable trade, for all citizens and their environment.
Support for amfori has continued to grow, with 205 new members joining the association in the past 12 months. Together, we are 2,414 members from all over the world, sending the inspiring message that Trade with Purpose continues to gain traction.
Some of amfori’s key achievements over the past year are detailed below through the report’s themes:
Supporting People: We are proud to have committed to the UN Declaration on Gender Responsive Standards, as well as fully rolling out our Women Empowerment Programme in India, Bangladesh and China.
Supporting Planet: amfori has strengthened our Collaboration with ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals), as well as advocating for Advocating for Sustainable Chemical, Product and Waste Legislation.
Supporting Prosperity: We are committed to ensuring that trade delivers benefits for all. This includes our advocacy for a sustainable lens on Free Trade Agreements, such as the Vietnam – EU Trade Agreement. We have also taken a position against a hard Brexit, which would significantly damage our member’s business.
