GROUNDS TO EARTH

Exceptional coffee starts with exceptional commitment. We believe we have a corporate responsibility to care for the environment that cares for us.

This is a journey about being better, not perfect; it’s about taking positive steps in the right direction with continual improvement and constant evaluation of our practices as a business.


OUR COMMITMENT IS TO REDUCE OUR IMPACT ON THE PLANET IN WAYS THAT ARE BOTH PRACTICAL AND ECONOMICALLY SUSTAINABLE.


Yes, words are easy, and this is a journey that is far from complete. But every step we take to reduce our impact on the planet takes us closer to achieving that goal.

New and exciting environmental initiatives such as the BIOMMA One Tree at a Time Coffee Project in Colombia is an effective way that will help your business’s carbon footprint, as well as setting an example for others to follow within our industry.

By working with Ue Coffee Roasters in collaboration with the One Tree at a Time Coffee Project, we are able to offer you longstanding resources and proven methods, that will transform your company into a force for positive change.
 

So we appeal to like minded businesses big or small, by putting the environment at the forefront of your operation. There are clear and obvious benefits to our planet and all its inhabitants if we reduce our environmental impact. But having a green focus can also positively affect your business. From customer acquisition to staff engagement, talk to us today and discover the many benefits of addressing your environmental impact.

In addition to the above, below we have outlined a number of ways we have as business made a postive change for the better, but this in no way confirms that our efforts are done. As we will constantly be evaluating new and effective methods within our working practices and those of our supply chain, that will aid us to work towards a status of being completely carbon neutral as a business.
