We were awarded Fairtrade University status in September 2013, a year earlier than our initial target date.
We continue to look at ways to incorporate further sustainability credentials within food provisions on the Cranfield campus and also within large-scale projects.
We now incorporate sustainability considerations within scoring criteria for tenders over £250,000 in value.
Fairtrade steering group
Chaired by Ian Sibbald this group has been specifically set up to identify how we can increase the availability of Fairtrade products on campus and look at broader sustainable food concerns.
We host Fairtrade Fortnight on an annual basis. During this fortnight, we host a variety of talks and events including talks from Zaytoun, the Fairtrade Foundation and other speakers.
We also host Fairtrade bakesales, film nights and stalls from Fairtrade suppliers.
