Bonn is a Fairtrade Town

Bonn has achieved it: The Federal and UNO City has managed to meet all the criteria of the international "Fairtrade Towns” Campaign and joins the over 850 Fairtrade Towns world-wide, including London, Brussels, Rome, Copenhagen and San Francisco. In an award celebration, Volkmar Luebke, Board member of TransFair e.V., presented the certificate to Lord Mayor Juergen Nimptsch and congratulated him: "This award recognizes the special commitment to fair trade shown by the citizens of Bonn and the city council. We are especially happy to be presenting this award to the home town of the registered office of the umbrella organisation of the Fairtrade label, Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International.”

"Many people, companies and organisations in Bonn have long ago started to support fair trade and set an example of solidarity and sustainability. I am very happy to see this commitment rewarded by being awarded the title "Fairtrade Town Bonn”. The City of Bonn, which is considered to be an international platform for the dialogue on environmental and developmental issues, sees this title as a motivation to continue its path of support for fair trade. The title "Fairtrade Town” should be an incentive for everyone involved to commit to fair trade and sustainable development in and for Bonn.”
