  • Diverted 75% of waste away from landfills and achieved zero-waste status on 100% of the company’s roasting facilities each year since 2018;

“Our commitment to quality coffee and service goes hand in hand with our commitment to sustainability, which is a three-part equation encompassing Social, Environmental, and Economic Development,” said president and chief executive Deverl Maserang

“We call that SEED – which is not a program, but a framework for how we approach our sustainability practices. We believe that each of these parts is inextricably intertwined with the others," Maserang continued. I
