The Library has been committing to serve Fairtrade coffee and now also Fairtrade tea in its own meetings and other occasions.

University of Jyväskylä achieved the Fair University status for the first time in 2015, and the title was achieved again in the current year. Fair University project is designed to support Fairtrade, and all status holders are committed to the continuous increase of the on campus consumption of Fairtrade products.

In addition to the Library, the Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Mathematics and Science, as well as the majority of student organizations in University of Jyväskylä are participating the Fair University project. Also Sonaatti cafes and restaurants and the Restaurant Ilokivi support Fairtrade.

The Fairtrade Foundation was established to help the farmers in developing countries improve their trading position in the international market. Thus, with the help of Fairtrade Foundation, the producers in developing countries are more able to improve the conditions in which they work and live. One of these improvements has been the prohibition of the use of child labor in all Fairtrade certified producer organizations.
