Bart Staes, Member of the European Parliament for the Flemish party Groen, committed to The Fair Times campaign by stating that he dreams of a fair future.

“I dream of a topsy-turvy world where all (world) trade is fair, a world where unfair trading practices and unfair production processes are labelled instead of the fair ones, for example money-raising activities for weapons or the spending of public funds on projects contributing to climate change. Imagine, if we got headlines in 2024 like ‘the new label for unsustainable practices, that obligates companies to display if their production is not CO2-neutral, will expand in varies industrial sectors now that labour conditions are included as criterion’. Wouldn’t that be amazing?”, says Bart Staes.
