Some quick eligibility questions

Fwd is a social procurement programme that certifies social enterprises that trade business-to-business (B2B) with larger organisations that typically have a procurement department/function. A track record of B2B trade is an important risk consideration for Fwd's buyer members, which are often larger public and private buying organisations, Government agencies or public sector entities.

Please note, if you are a sole trader or your organisation is based in a country other than New Zealand and doesn't have a New Zealand legal entity, we may not be able to certify your organisation.

According to the Fwd certification criteria, if your organisation has been trading for 5 or more years, more than 50% of revenue must come from trade. For more information on the criteria we use for Fwd certification purposes, please visit www.fwd.org.nz
