Feeling the effects of climate change
Many of the farmers we know tell us that they feel the effects of climate change. It comes in varying forms; more crop disease, later rains, not enough sun, too much wind, more pests.
The farmers are learning how to adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change and our long-term support and commitment to purchasing certified coffees enables many organisations to invest in measures to help them increase quality and yield and also in income diversification programmes to help them cope with the changing climate.
Our Commitment to the Environment
As a business, we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our business. We offset our carbon emissions, we are currently reviewing alternatives to our coffee foils, we have listed paper straws instead of plastic and we are reviewing how to reduce our business impact on the environment.
