Climate change is having a detrimental impact on global coffee production, with drastic consequences for our producers around the world. As a result, we have had every reason to take a proactive and holistic approach to mitigation and adaption.
One Carbon World is an initiative which aims to reduce climate change and assists organisations to achieve carbon neutrality over the next four years. Working with One Carbon World, we verified our carbon footprint methodology and results, and offset out emissions by purchasing certified credits from a tree planting project in Uruguay and a wind energy project in India. As a result we are proud to be the first roastery in the world to achieve the Carbon Neutral Gold Standard.
As part of our commitment to net zero emissions, we have also now joined the UN Climate Neutral Now Initiative. Launched in 2015, this scheme aims at encouraging and supporting all levels of society to take climate action to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as set out in the Paris Agreement.
Our journey is ongoing and we will continue report annually on this and all our sustainability initiatives. You can read the latest report here
