CURRENT IMPACT OF DEFORESTATION 
 

To see the current impact of deforestation please be patient while the satellite map loads below.
Once loaded the areas in pink will depict forest cover lost due to deforestation. When we clear forests we release stored carbon into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide which contributes to climate change.

 

This tool from the Global Forest Watch was prepared by University of Maryland & Google researchers to monitor forest disturbance. This is the current view depicting forest loss with satellite imagery refreshed daily from Sentinel 2 (European Space Agency) and Landsat 8 (U.S. Geological Survey).
 

KNOW & MEASURE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
 

Earth, our home is in crisis due to the devastation of our forests, our over-dependence on fossil fuels (gas, coal & oil),  our food & transport choices, and plastic pollution in our oceans.

According to the UN, climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity
As a society, we all have to take action to become Carbon Neutral or Net Zero Carbon by 2030.

This means we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint in the following areas:

1. COFFEE FOOTPRINT - Supplying a farm to fork solution that links farmers with direct market access to coffee buyers. This ensures the coffee we sell has the lowest possible footprint and is fair and sustainably sourced.

2. ENVIRONMENT FOOTPRINT - We have created new value chains and business models based on resources and waste optimization by supplying our coffee in packaging that can be reused and recycled. 

3. CARBON LITERACY FOOTPRINT - We will endeavor to measure, track and continuously educate our staff to become a carbon literate workforce. As part of our social mission, we will provide information to our customers on how to make informed and sustainable food choices that consider the climate, environment, and social aspects of food production.
