Denise Taschereau

Co-Founder & CEO, Fairware

Denise is (CEO) and Co-founder of Fairware where she is responsible for business development, product sourcing as well as Fairware’s ethical sourcing and sustainability programs. Fairware is a founding B Corp and provides sustainable and ethically sourced promotional products to North America’s leading brands and organization. Denise got the idea to launch Fairware when she noticed how difficult it was to source promotional merchandise that reflected the social and environmental priorities of many of the brands and organizations she admired. Prior to starting Fairware, Denise spent seven years as the Director of Sustainability and Community for Mountain Equipment Co-op, Canada’s largest outdoor retailer. At MEC, she oversaw the Co-op’s national environmental programs, community grant-making, and ethical sourcing programs, and wrote their award-winning first Sustainability Report.
