Community

FTA members hail from every corner of Europe, and their supply chains stretch across the globe. To support them to strengthen their activities, FTA’s community extends to national and international level. This includes FTA Country Representations in Bangladesh, China, India and Turkey, and FTA Sustainability National Contact Groups (NCGs) in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, and Sweden. This way, FTA offers members access to a powerful community of peers and experts on sustainable trade issues

FTA Sustainability National Contact Groups

With over 1,900 participants and growing, FTA relies on NCGs to offer a platform for informal BSCI and BEPI participants' discussion and best practice sharing at national level. The results of these meetings are shared with all BSCI participants, helping them to stay informed of national developments in other EU countries that might become trends.
