Axfoundation puts the spotlight on sustainable production and consumption.
About the Program
In this area Axfoundation aims to improve human rights and working conditions of employees, migrant workers and small-scale farmers in the global production chain. We apply a rights-based approach and work in collaboration with Swedish and international partners. We also investigate purchasing practices and the impact of the entire value chain on income and working conditions.
Axfoundation tests and develops methods for increased transparency and traceability, including possibilities within blockchain technology. Increased visibility makes it possible to detect and address problems, to place responsibility where it belongs and to provide accurate product information to customers. Together with various experts and partners we build knowledge and make good examples visible.
Axfoundation also wants to contribute to changing consumer behavior. We believe it is an important task to assist customers in making sustainable choices, in the store and online. The customer is always right, but they don’t always make the right choices.
