The aim of the Fair Rubber Association is to contribute to an improvement of the working and living conditions of the primary producers of natural latex (rubber). To achieve this, the Fair Rubber
Association is a a multi-stakeholder initiative and has among its members companies, which buy Fairly produced rubber (products) from supplier partner. These companies pay a Fair Trade premium
for every kilogram of rubber they buy – the association ensures that this money reaches the supplier partners. Products traded under these criteria are distinguished by displaying the Fair Rubber
logo. Of course, supplier partners themselves decide what they want to do with the Fair Trade premium. Supplier partners have to comply
with a criteria list.
The Fair Rubber Association was founded in 2012. Due to its diverse membership it acts as a platform of co-operation between companies which trade in products made with Fairly Traded natural
rubber and representatives of the civil society which support the expansion of the concept of Fair Trade.
Since 2019, the Fair Rubber Association has been subscriber of the International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labelling Alliance (ISEAL Alliance),
a global membership association for credible sustainability standards.
