Since 2009,we have reduced our total carbon footprint by 31% and are on course for a further 20% reduction by 2017. With natural gas usage from coffee roasting in our main source of emissions, we have invested in high-efficiency roasters that use 76% less natural gas than standard roasters.
Stay tuned for more incredible strides toward sustainability in 2016!
