We’re proud to announce that we have made our internal purchased energy, business facilities and vehicles (classed as Scope 1&2 emissions) carbon-neutral.
This means that the total sum of the carbon released by our roastery, central office and in-house transport is no greater than what we absorb.
It goes without saying that climate change poses a serious threat to our ways of living and the future of the planet as we know it. It’s already doing serious damage to the coffee industry and the livelihoods of farmers. And we know that we’ve got to play our small part to help.
This needs to be done through things like supporting reforestation and conservation projects abroad and much closer to home – both in our London office and Haslemere roastery. We also do this by offsetting our emissions with heavily vetted carbon credit that we can trust.
We’ve had carbon neutrality at the forefront of our mind since the beginning. But a number of excellent steps by our colleagues in the roastery have allowed us to achieve this goal.
Our CEO, Paul Turton, said: “I’m delighted that everything in-house is now carbon-neutral. A lot of the fantastic farmers have long been working hard to secure things for future generations, so it was a non-negotiable for us to support this mindset in any small way, and for me that’s tightening up what we can. If that means actions such as switching to renewable energy, it’s a no-brainer”.
“It would be easy to see this as a ticked box, but we’re still working hard to improve things externally and make our Scope 3 emissions carbon-neutral. We’ll continue to take the sustainable option at every turn and work with similar-minded companies”.
Keep your eyes peeled for our transparency report, which will be released in June, for more information.
