To us social sustainability starts with our connection to real people. We are committed to paying our artisans a minimum of 30% above global standards, creating healthy working spaces and ensuring gender equality.
INTRODUCING OUR ARTISAN EDUCATION FUND
Thanks to our Coco Community we've been able to impact the lives of our artisan's families for generations to come through our Artisan Education Fund.
In this video, you'll see their priceless reactions when they receive the good news.
We are SO proud and beyond excited to support our amazing artisans and thank them for all the incredible work they do through this initiative.
We pay our artisans 30% above ethical wage and income standards set by Fair Trade and the ETI Base Code. Since 2016 we’ve been able to provide full time job certainty to our growing team in regional areas of Vietnam and Indonesia. We are proud to offer job certainty, we believe it is crucial in creating the foundations of a good life, allowing people to plan and invest in their future.
The health of the people who make our Coconut Bowls is as important as the artisans who craft them so we ensure their working conditions stand up to the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code. This is a globally recognised code of positive labour practices that ensures the rights of all people.
Guaranteeing wage equality and job opportunities between genders has seen our workforce of artisans thrive. Providing a welcoming and positive workplace has created a space for our artisans to voice any concerns, be heard and know they’re safeguarded against prejudice.
