Sustainability is, and always has been, a core principle of how we do business at Matthew Algie. Our approach starts with coffee and our commitment to be a dependable partner for the farmers in our supply chains, many of whom operate in environmentally, socially or economically challenging contexts.
Beyond this, our commitment to sustainability permeates the way we source other products, and ensures that we continually pursue reductions in our environmental impact, create a better place to work and meaningfully invest back into our coffee community.
Our Sustainability Report (2017-2021)
Over the past couple of years, we’ve been working on our first Sustainability Report and we’re delighted to finally be able to share it with you.
Our first report is a chance to reflect on our progress to date and celebrate some of the key milestones we’ve achieved on our journey – from launching the UK’s first Fairtrade certified espresso back in 1997 to winning the 2Degrees Award for our collaborative project with the San Juan del Oro cooperative in 2015.
It’s also an opportunity to share the work we’ve been doing on developing a strategic five-year sustainability plan and what we’re hoping to achieve by the end of 2021. Our intention is to deepen the impact of the work that we do and improve the way that we communicate this with stakeholders in the future.
