Transparency Report 2023 | 6th Edition
Transparency is fundamental to our approach, and we believe it is a key driver of change in the coffee industry. As such, this year's transparency report will primarily focus on our transparency index, highlighting the steps we've taken to improve transparency across our organisation.

For five years, Coffee Collective has published our annual sustainability report, highlighting the company’s efforts and achievements in various sustainable initiatives. However, we are taking a different approach by focusing primarily on transparency in this year's report.

In Coffee Collective we work within three pillars of sustainability

Our sustainability focus

We are founded on social sustainability, which is our core purpose in everything that we do. A sustainable financial foundation is important to achieve this.

2022 has been a challenging year for people as well as for businesses. We have, like many others, been affected by the economic pressure that the increased price inflation has put on all of us. It has been necessary to focus our resources on the core of the business; creating great coffee experiences that improve the living conditions of farmers across the globe.

Transparency is fundamental to our approach and we believe it is a key driver for change in the coffee industry. As such, this year we have created a transparency report that will primarily focus on our transparency index.

While the focus of this report may have shifted, our commitment to sustainability has not. We are continually exploring new ways to reduce waste, minimize our carbon footprint, and make a positive impact on our planet.

Our environmental indicators

A recurring topic in the last couple of issues has been our path toward Net Zero. Since then, the definition of the concept has been further defined so that we no longer would be able to call ourselves Net Zero in 2022. In our blog post about our climate contribution, we expand on this, as well as invite the reader in for a conversation about farmer collaborations, supplier code of conduct, and our forest project.

In February 2023 a work assessment survey was sent out to all employees (73 responded). The survey included questions regarding employee satisfaction and trust, an evaluation that we look into every year.

Our social indicators- Female and male identification is based on assumptions. We acknowledge that this is no longer enough, and are working on a way to be more inclusive and enable people to decide how to be identified in terms of gender

At Coffee Collective, we value the transparency from seed to cup. That is why our coffee transparency table plays a major role in every issue of our annual Sustainability report

This way we are able to put concrete figures on the positive impact we are trying to create as well as showcase the ongoing relationship with the coffee farmers.
