THE University of Bradford and its students' union have achieved the Fairtrade University award, after being audited for the academic years 2020/21 and 2021/22.

The prestigious award is delivered as a partnership between the Fairtrade Foundation, the National Union of Students, and Students Organising for Sustainability. The Fairtrade University and College Award requires students to engage in partnerships with their institution and students’ union/association to achieve the award.

The University of Bradford has been awarded Fairtrade University and College Award 1* status.

Joanna Milis, from the Fairtrade Foundation, said: “The last two years have been very challenging for universities as they deal with the disruptions caused by the pandemic.

“Completing the Fairtrade University and College Award in 2022 has, therefore, been an incredible achievement.”
