Environmentally Better

 

Volcano Coffee Works has always made business decisions with the environment in mind. We know every decision, big and small has a cost and potential benefit, the question is what priority you put on each. Here are just some of the actions we've taken that put the environment ahead of hard-nosed sense. 

  1. Carbon Neutral- Becoming a CarbonNeutral® Company because we aren’t going to kid ourselves that getting great coffee to our customers doesn’t generate a lot of carbon.  We are also moving our supplier purchasing to CarbonNeutral® companies, like our 100% renewable energy supplier. 
  2. Reducing waste - We pack our wholesale customer’s coffee in larger bags, saving over 150kgs of plastic each year – how much is that?  That’s enough to make a plastic bag large enough to cover greater London. 
  3. Reducing emissions- Our state of the art Loring coffee roasters use 80% less gas and are smokeless, so we don’t fill the air around Brixton with smoke.
  4. Environmentally friendly packaging- 100% of our packaging is recyclable and 50% is made from recycled materials. Our Nespresso-compatible coffee pods are also fully compostable.  
  5. Recycling- We recycle whenever we can and work with our suppliers to help their products we’ve sold to our customers come back to get safely recycled.
  6. Cycling- We love employee benefits that also help the environment. We’re a bit cycling mad, so much so that we have sponsored the Herne Hill Velodrome and HHYCC for the last 7 years.  We also offer our employees help buying their bike via our Company Bike Scheme. 

    We will continue to do what is within our control to reduce our impact on the environment. We are hopeful that consumers will join us as they have the greatest power – they get to choose which companies are in our economic future and what they want these businesses to stand for.  By buying products from companies that demonstrate they think about the environment and take responsibility for the carbon they produce, consumers are sending a clear message to all businesses, helping fight this climate crisis with us.
