Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD)
Sustainable Development Goals
Your roadmap to sustainable production, consumption and trade
The Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) Programme at the International Trade Centre is a partnership-based programme which empowers and equips micro, small and medium- sized enterprises (MSMEs) to improve their sustainability performance for better efficiency and international competitiveness.
The Programme does this through providing a global sustainability platform (scale), impactful partnerships (reach) and direct trade-related assistance to MSMEs (transformation) along two main intervention pillars: sustainability standards and social responsibility.
With our help, farmers are now able to certify their products as organic, and companies are learning how to become sustainable and are able to apply for green finance. Our resources also provide tools for businesses to assess their compliance against sustainability standards and potentially access preferential bank loans based on their sustainability score.
