• Fairtrade


GCU has a longstanding commitment to Fairtrade (it was first accredited a Fairtrade University in 2012) and is working in partnership with GCU Students' Association towards accreditation against the new Fairtrade Universities and Colleges award

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Find out more here

The University's and Students' Association commitments are set out in our joint Fairtrade Policy.  

Fairtrade products are currently available primarily through the catering outlets on campus and we are engaging our supply chain to explore opportunities for increasing the range of products that are Fairtrade or have strong ethical trade credentials.
