Trade With Purpose - Introducing Vision 2030

The world as we know it is changing, which means it's time to rethink and reimagine the future. We want to create a world where all trade delivers social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone. 

For several months, FTA has been working on a new long term strategy to ensure our organisation is fit to answer the current and future needs of its members.

On 13 April the Board of Directors approved a new bold and ambitious strategic Vision 2030 to take our organisation forward with a new vision, a strong mission and a clear set of priorities.

The time is now. A time for change

We have 40 years of experience to be proud of. In collaboration with our members we have championed the role that trade plays in creating economic growth, innovation, investment and jobs, and in lifting millions of people out of poverty. Together we have evolved and embraced a new understanding of the relationship between trade and sustainability, and made the case that open and responsible trade can be an engine of environmental and social progress. 

Along with this strategy, a new identity has been developed to clearly communicate who we are and what we stand for. amfori, our new brand symbolises that trade is timeless and reflects our belief that it is an instrument of human progress. Discover our new brand and its story in the kit below! 

Effective governance is a key component of the delivery of Vision 2030. Therefore we proposed a renewed governance to provide more simplicity, flexibility and transparency to the decision-making process. They were included among the renewed by-laws submitted to a member vote during the General Assembly at the FTA Conference 2017 whose positive vote supports the implementation of the new strategy as from January 2018.
