The first step to achieve this goal was to calculate our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. It was not easy an easy task as by the end of 2017 we had direct operations in 9 different countries across the world involving more than 50 different business sites and 156 full time employees (FTE) based in 11 countries across the globe. To properly calculate our carbon footprint, it was necessary to gather data from all these operations and to keep track of the movement of our people and coffee.
This report aims to share with the coffee community and our stakeholders the methodology used to calculate our carbon footprint and the results of these calculations.
