Analysing sustainability efforts for a leading green coffee trading group

Client

Leading green coffee trader

 

Problem

The coffee trading group lacked a comprehensive understanding of its worldwide sustainability activities and sought to develop a group-wide, holistic sustainability strategy.

 

Solution

Created survey on sustainability practices and designed a stock-taking template to compile data on coffee farm projects and supported the corporate responsibility team in collecting data

Conducted follow-on interviews with 26 subsidiaries (coffee farms, cooperatives, importers, exporters) to deepen understanding of current sustainability practices

Analysed findings and advised the client on sustainability activities and goals to establish a first group-wide sustainability framework

 

Impact

The client gained a detailed understanding of its sustainability activities worldwide and was able to derive concrete goals and activities to establish a group wide sustainability strategy framework.
