We intend to continue playing an active role in building value for society, contributing towards the adoption of more responsible behaviour while at the same time adding value to the various moments of consumption and sharing provided by coffee.
A path of sustainability is therefore a priority of the Group and for all its brands.
Sustainability is in our DNA, and we are working non-stop to reconcile the economic growth model with the sustainability model in all our companies in such a way as to ensure the sustained development of our business.
WHAT ARE WE DOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD?
Between 2015 and 2018 we remained determined to contribute to the sustainable development of our business. The results generated by the initiatives implemented over the past 4 years, across 9 areas of activity, reflect our contribution.
WHAT WE SEEK TO DO:
- ENSURE OUR ECONOMIC PROFITABILITY BY REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT AND MAXIMISING OUR POSITIVE SOCIAL IMPACT
- CONTINUOUSLY CONTRIBUTE IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS TO ACHIEVE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
- ENHANCE THE SUSTAINABILITY OF COFFEE-PRODUCING COMMUNITIES
- ACTIVELY PROMOTE SUSTAINABILITY IN OUR PROJECTS, PROCESSES AND INFRASTRUCTURE
- EMPOWER FUTURE GENERATIONS BY VALUING THEIR ROLE AS THE BUILDERS OF TOMORROW
Our path is driven by a Global Sustainability Strategy developed under the “We Share the Future” concept.
Designed around the contribution to the 9 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and which rests on 3 pillars:
Our sustainability as a group of companies in the coffee sector depends on expanding into new markets and the introduction of innovative products and services, as well as on our ability to incorporate and influence our value chain in order to adopt good environmental and social practices.
