As part of our Sustainability Strategy, Volcafe promotes regenerative practices that address the impact of climate change on coffee cultivation.
We are already working with partners to increase our understanding and to mitigate climate change risks in key coffee regions, including the effects of temperature fluctuations, flooding, droughts and frosts.
We want to do more and go further to find root-cause solutions to environmental issues that we can deliver in coffee origins to protect livelihoods and markets.
Volcafe understands that coffee's future is intrinsically linked to mitigating the effects of a changing climate. Coffee farmers are already seeing the impacts on their crops. At the same time, we know that coffee farms can be a model for regenerative agriculture, reducing the need for costly chemical inputs while safeguarding local ecology.
To strengthen our efforts on climate change and the promotion of regenerative practices, Volcafe has formed numerous partnerships. These include:
Printed calendars offer illustrated guidance on sustainable farming for thousands of coffee growers.Read story
A partnership is distributing tens of thousands of native tree saplings to coffee farmers, aiding efforts to restore forests.Read story
A new project aims to promote sustainable farming and demonstrate that farmers can positively change the coffee-growing landscape.Read story
We're turning a waste product into something useful, and promoting circularity in the process.Read story
