Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) is ITC’s partnership-based programme that provides comprehensive, verified and transparent information on voluntary sustainability standards through Standards Map, and through the soon to be launched Sustainability Marketplace and SustainabilityXchange web platforms. The main objective of T4SD overarching programme is to strengthen the capacity of producers, exporters, policymakers, and private and public buyers to participate in more sustainable production and trade.
Standards Map enables its users to identify voluntary sustainability standards, generate comparisons between standards’ content requirements, and to assess their business' sustainability roadmap to sustainable trade.
SustainabilityXchange is a community-owned online platform which aims to increase the participation of agricultural producers from developing countries and emerging markets in sustainable trade.
The Sustainability Marketplace will be launched in the third quarter of 2016. This virtual marketplace will allow users to share their sustainability diagnostic reports generated on Standards Map with buyers, traders, standards organizations, certification bodies,.
T4SD's Principles aim to articulate a set of core values in the area of sustainable trade.
The development of the Standards Map website would not have been possible with out the active financial, technical and advisory support of its main partners.
