Sustainability

An Industry With A Sustainable Future In Mind

In Canada, coffee businesses drive important sustainability initiatives in store design, recycling and operating practices. They also make a difference in their communities by supporting many charitable events and activities.

Internationally, coffee businesses are involved in a multitude of sustainability initiatives in the environmental, economic and social arenas. Larger initiatives include the Fair Trade movement, Rainforest Alliance, Utz Certified, Grounds for Health, Coffee Kids and Technoserve.

The members of the Coffee Association of Canada have a commitment to the people who grow the coffee beans that we buy. Many coffee players have established direct relationships built around aid and sustainability in a number of coffee growing countries.
