We're Carbon Neutral

Carbon Neutral

Carbon Neutral

We have been carbon neutral since 2022.

With ethics and sustainability at the core of our business since beginning in 2010, being recognised as a carbon neutral company felt natural.

We care about the planet so much we almost stopped making coffee.

How We Have Done It

We have partnered with Carbon Analytics to measure our carbon footprint because they include a lot of Scope 3 costs in their calculations, this felt better to us. Natural Capital Partners have invested our carbon credits for us, we chose to buy credits that protect the Katingan Peatlands Conservation in Indonesia. 

We could have bought carbon credits at half the price, but investing back to where our coffees come from is important to us, it closes the loop. Meaning our investment helps protect the environment which our coffee farmers depend upon. 

Our Carbon Neutral Project

To offset our emissions this year, we are supporting a project in the Katingan Peatlands Conservation, Indonesia.

Tropical peatlands store massive amounts of carbon and so when these peatlands are cleared, drained and burned to make way for plantations and other developments, this carbon is released into the atmosphere along with other greenhouse gases.

The project protects nearly 150,000 hectares of peatland ecosystem, and the surrounding villages from development. The area stores vast amounts of carbon, reducing around 7.45 million CO2 emissions per year and plays a vital role in stabilizing water flows, preventing devastating peat fires, enriching soil nutrients and providing clean water.

The peatlands are also rich in biodiversity, being home to large populations of many high conservation value species, including some of the world’s most endangered; such as the Bornean Orangutan and Proboscis Monkey.

This Is Just The Beginning

Becoming a Carbon Neutral Company doesn’t stop here.  Next, we will be working to get our products certified as Carbon Neutral too, this is next level!   

In addition, we will continue to work to reduce our business’ carbon footprint.  We’re switching to Carbon Neutral suppliers, buying from Companies that actively measure and reduce their C02, and are finding ways we can work differently in more carbon efficient ways, reducing the carbon we produce from our operations bit by bit. 

We have to admit that getting our heads around all of this have taken a lot of time and investment.  If you want to know more about how and what we have done, then please get in touch.  We are very proud of becoming a Carbon Neutral Company, but if we can help other businesses join us, that will be the real icing on the cake!   

And this is just the beginning; we are also B-corp certified and we want more businesses (coffee industry & beyond) to join us in becoming more sustainable.
