Williams-Sonoma Inc. Will Double Fair Trade Premiums
Williams-Sonoma Inc. (WSI) aims to have 75% of its products meet one or more of its social and environmental goals by 2030, a commitment that represents $1 billion in product purchases annually.
In pursuit of that goal, the multi-nameplate home furnishings retailer announced new investments in purchases of Nest Ethical Handcraft products and its intention to double investments in Fair Trade USA programs by 2025. WSI became the first home retailer to offer Fair Trade Certified products with the launch of one rug factory in India. Today it works with 17 Fair Trade Certified factories in five countries, impacting nearly 16,000 workers.
