Fair-Trade town of Dreieich
Across Germany, there already are more than 200 “Fair trade towns”. Being awarded the title of “Fair trade town” is based on a successful application and the fulfilment of five criteria. Dreieich, too, decided in October 2012 to apply for the title. It was decided in 2013 that the next steps on the path to evaluation and recognition by TransFair e.V. should be coordinated within the framework of a steering meeting.
Representatives from the administration, trade, public institutions and local media participate in the steering group. The title of “Fair trade town” is initially awarded for two years, after which it will reassessed as to whether the criteria are still fulfilled.
