Responsible Footprint Initiative

Responsible Footprint Initiative

As part of our efforts to connect supply and demand responsibly – as well as managing our environmental impact - COFCO International is working with producers to measure and validate the carbon footprint of its coffee supply chains in Brazil and Colombia, two of the world’s major producing counties.

The validated emissions – all the way from the farm up to the roaster’s port of destination - are offset via Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) projects focusing on agro-forestry, water shed protection and the use of renewable energy in food processing. This results in a new innovative product for the market – Certified Carbon Neutral Coffee – which has a zero emissions footprint.
