Sustainability

100% Sustainable by 2025!

We understand that businesses want and need to be more ethical. One of the ways they are doing this is through initiatives such as Fairtrade, supporting coffee farmers.

Sustainability has been an integral part of our business strategy since 2006 with our ultimate goal to become a 100% sustainable business by 2025. By the end of 2015 we reached 40% sustainability from 8% in 2008.

Our sustainable concept covers:

  • Economical sustainability – good standard of living for farmers and their families.
  • Environmental sustainability – safeguarding cultivation methods and tools to adapt to climate change.
  • Social sustainability – supporting the development of stable local social structures through, for example, educational programmes.
