Since 2020, we have been dedicated to studying the carbon footprint of our coffee supply chain, including small-scale farms with steep slopes, manual harvesting, and shade-grown coffee. What we found was that sustainable agricultural practices can be employed in coffee production to preserve the environment and endangered ecosystems.
In this report, we aim to highlight the importance of sustainable agricultural practices as the foundation of sustainable coffee agriculture. By assessing the carbon footprint and GHG sources of coffee production, we demonstrate the benefits of sustainable farming methods. We also aim to start a conversation about finding scalable solutions for monitoring, reporting, and validating sustainable practices, including training programs for farmers.
To kick off this important discussion, we invite you to watch a video that provides an introduction to the carbon footprint of coffee, GHG sources, and sustainable coffee production. After watching, we encourage you to read the full report to gain a deeper understanding of the topic and learn how we can work together to ensure more sustainable coffee production in the future.
