(16 October 2020) – The Swedish city of Malmö wins the 2020 edition of the European Commission’s Fair and Ethical Trade City Award.
Based on 11 eligible applications from local authorities across the European Union, and after shortlisting the top five applicants, a jury composed of representatives of business, civil society, the International Trade Centre and the Commission has chosen Malmö as the Winner of the 2020 Fair and Ethical Trade City Award.
The award will fund a project selected by the Winner to support fair and ethical supply chains in a non-EU country improving working conditions and the protection of the environment.
