We have worked with businesses, industries and others to promote sustainable, locally produced goods and services known as biotrade.
UNION FOR ETHICAL BIOTRADE
The Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) brings together actors committed to business practices that contribute in a systematic way towards sustainable development and biodiversity conservation, constituting the flagship association for the Ethical BioTrade movement. The UEBT promotes, facilitates and recognizes ethical trade practices in goods that meet the sustainable development goals in the Convention of Biological Diversity. Members are from a wide range of industries, including cosmetics and personal care products, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, complementary medicine, and fashion and accessories.
