Awards and achievements
Recognising positive impact
Alongside our independent certification, B Corp, 1% for the Planet and Carbon Neutral Organisation certification we’ve also been recognised with a number of awards highlighting our commitment to creating a lasting positive impact.
From multiple Better Business Partnership award wins to the NSW Green Globe award for Excellence in Sustainability. Most recently we were announced as finalists for the Banksia Foundation NSW Sustainability Awards in the Net Zero Action category. Achievements we’re all really proud of.
They highlight and serve as markers of achievement but in essence, they are a result of our ongoing commitment to being the best coffee brand for the world. We also know that none of these awards would be possible without the ongoing support of our amazing team and community around us.
Talk the talk & walk the walk
What we’re doing on home turf
Some of our highlights over the past few years include being one of the first coffee roasters in Australia to install rooftop solar panels. Meaning a large percentage of our power usage is drawn directly from our solar system and any leftover is put back into the grid.
We shifted our single-use cups and lids to 100% biodegradable and compostable BioPak products. We’re also working with local communities to donate coffee chaff, coffee jute bags and grounds to local community gardens and co-ops.
We’ve got exciting announcements soon regarding the repurposing of more of our waste outputs that will help close the loop and ensure our negative impact and carbon footprint is reduced.
A journey to a better future
A path to impact
The recent release of the IPCC report on climate change should be the wake up call we all need. We are living in a world changing under the direct influence of manmade climate change.
As with most organisations, we share some of that blame. We’re upfront, we’re not perfect, we’ve got a long way to go, there’s always more to do. But we’re on a journey and there is hope, we can all make a difference but we need to take action now as individuals and businesses alike. We have the power to reverse the path we’re on.
We must act and be advocates for change. As part of our commitment, we set 3 big goals as an organisation to achieve by 2025; 100% of our packaging will be recyclable or compostable; We’ll have a B Corp score of 100+ (currently 89.9) and excitingly we’ve already achieved our 1% for the Planet membership goal. Will you join us on our journey?
