The largest coffee companies in the world
Responsible or not?
A new report from Ethos Agriculture analyzes how the 11 largest coffee companies are doing when it comes to sustainability.
Unfortunately, we see some red flags when it comes to their social, environmental and economic impact.
On paper, the sustainability promises of most roasters remain disconnected, limited to token charity or CSR initiatives that only superficially address their social and environmental impacts [...] The lack of any transparency regarding procurement practices or funding raises concerns that none of the roasters are demonstrating a willingness to compensate small-scale coffee farmers for operating sustainably, such as by paying a price that reflects the social and environmental costs involved.
An overview of ESG performance
The Coffee Barometer is a report that goes into the sustainability strategies of the 11 largest coffee companies in the world, and assesses them on the social, environmental and economic levels.
They analyze how they are doing and score them on their performance. This gives the coffee barometer.
