Our “environmental policy” focuses on every aspect of our business from the farm through to when the coffee leaves our ownership/control.
We believe we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements and are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually look for new opportunities to do so as it is a continual improvement scenario.
We prioritise supply that is Rainforest Alliance and Organic or where a supplier demonstrates environmental awareness even if they do not have an independent certification.
We measure our carbon footprint with a goal to become carbon neutral. Purchasing credits is only done where we are unable to manage our business without.
We prioritise logistics and shipping lines that share our environmental beliefs.
We encourage our team to be more environmentally aware of their travel, both on behalf of work but also for their commute to the office, promoting initiatives such as the “Bike to Work” scheme.
We continually review initiatives within the office to reduce the amount of energy used and implement those relevant to our business.
With Paper and office supplies, maintenance and cleaning, our goal is to use as little as possible to generate as little waste as possible, in every aspect of the office operation. The choice of product and supplier used always prioritises the environmentally friendly.
