On the occasion of International Earth Day 2021, Caffè Vergnano announces the creation of its Committee for Sustainability, a new operational body that aims at establishing the company’s strategic and action lines for the next few years.
In defining the action plan, Caffè Vergnano has identified three areas within which to articulate these activities: production process, energy, and product development.
For years, the company has been committed to running these actions sustainably, and they will be the springboard from which the guidelines will be defined.
The Committee is made up, at a very early stage, of technical and strategic resources within the company, who are currently engaged in the following divisions: Production, Quality, Purchasing, Logistics, Design, Marketing & Pr.
A second phase will also include the entry of guests and external consultants in order to broaden the point of view and skills applied to the project.
“For years, we have been committed to sustainability in a broad sense. We believe it is now essential to structure our actions in a more defined and shared way” declares Carolina Vergnano, founder of the Corporate Committee – “This is the only way that we can act more concretely and effectively, putting environmental issues at the center of our business approach “
Always sensitive to environmental issues, Caffè Vergnano is constantly committed to minimizing the impact on the environment. From compostable capsules to the reuse of empty coffee cans, from packs that can be fully recycled and to whole bean coffee packs made up with 50% recycled PET.
Furthermore, since 2018, our approach to sustainability has also extended to social issues with Women in Coffee, the fundraising project that supports female empowerment projects and enhances the role of women in coffee plantations.
