Coffee farmers tell us that climate change is their biggest problem.
Sustainability is woven through everything we do across the business and with our farmer partners.
We work with Fairtrade certified farmers who protect forests and biodiversity. They have funding and training to reduce the use of chemicals, produce organically and plant trees. They’re also advised on soil health, plant nutrition and water conservation.Read more
Producers Direct is our non-profit farmer led partner. With our support, they provide funding, technology, training and advice so that farmers can manage their farms sustainably. This means protecting their environment but also adapting to their ever-changing climate.Read more
Science Based Targets
Joining the Science Based Targets initiative means we’re reducing our carbon footprint to meet international climate change goals. By 2025 we will reduce our own* greenhouse gas emissions by 25%, and to 50% by 2030 (from our 2019 baseline). We’re also measuring and reducing emissions from our suppliers and customers, as part of our science-based commitment to net zero by 2040.**
*Our own operations include emissions produced from Scopes 1 and 2
**This will include emissions produced by scopes 1,2 & 3
