Earth Day and sustainable practices that promote a positive impact on the environment have always been a key focus for Bewley's as we have strived to make our planet a better place to be. For decades we have promoted both sustainable sourcing and the positive impacts we can have on our communities through our partnerships with our Fairtrade suppliers and bettering their lives.
We became a founding member of Origin Green in 2012, Ireland’s pioneering food and drink sustainability programme, and have achieved a 35% reduction in energy, 17% reduction in water, 65% reduction in waste and a 53% reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions since then. While we’re proud of our progress, there’s always more work to be done and we are committed to setting ambitious targets that minimise the impact our business has on the planet for decades to come as part of our ongoing commitment to the environment.
Bewley's sense of responsibility extends far further than coffee farms and tea gardens. We believe in being ethical and responsible in everything we do and conducting our business in a manner that improves the health of the planet and the lives of all those we deal with.
This year, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of our partnership with Fairtrade Ireland. In 1996 we became the first company to introduce Fairtrade coffee to Ireland and since 2017, we have only sold 100% Fairtrade coffee.
The premium we pay for Fairtrade coffee is used by co-operatives susceptible to climate change such as SOPEXCCA in Jinotega, Nicaragua, to invest in training and coffee varietals that will grow higher up in the mountains, compensating for the temperature changes.
We continue each year to strive towards becoming more ethically sound and increasing the opportunities of all farmers in the co-operatives we work with.
