NI's WFTO Self Assessment

Browse shop > Fair Trade

The Self Assessment


As a member of WFTO, every two years New Internationalist is required to send WFTO a Self-Assessment against the ten Standards for Fair Trade Organisations. This self assessment is judged by a WFTO committee, to assess whether we can continue to call ourselves a Fair Trade Organisation.A past sample NI Self Assessment is available for download here.

External Audits


Every year, approximately 10% of Fair Trade Organisations are also subject to an audit by independent external and expert auditors. When New Internationalist is subject to one of these audits we will publish the results on this site also.

Changes afoot

The WFTO is currently upgrading their membership and monitoring procedures. As details become available they will be posted here.

Commendations

I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia. New Internationalist is about the only remaining forum of journalistic integrity and genuine humanity that is commonly available in Australia. I'm also very impressed with your New Internationalist shop. The products are fantastic and speak of the quality and dedication of their manufacturers. The stories attached to the products are very inspiring and uplifting. Please keep up the great work.

Thanks for my new ongoing digital subscription that replaces the paper subscription I have had for so many years I can't recall when it began. I had started to read the paper edition that arrived in the mail today but the digital edition is much clearer and the archive of so many earlier editions a great bonus.

G. Booker, subscriber

I have subscribed to New Internationalist for over 25 years, and can vouch for its fearless, high quality reporting of the real issues all over the world. And lovely items in their shop, too!

S. Bond, 5-star Facebook review

I have enjoyed reading your magazine since I was 14 years old when I discovered it in my school library. I'm now 32 and the magazine still delivers.
