Coffee & Sustainability


How Can Coffee Contribute?

Coffee is uniquely positioned to drive globally sustainable concepts that produce positive outcomes across multiple industries and points on the supply chain. The SCA has numerous entry portals for concerned and responsible coffee professionals to pledge their commitment to a more sustainable industry and world.

SCA Retailer Programs

Wouldn't it be great if cafes could save 10-30 percent in costs and we as an industry could boast a large-scale and coordinated reduction, displaying our leadership and commitment to the environment? We view SCA's programs to be an opportunity to be equal partners, not just aim solutions at the effect but to address the underlying causes. That is not an idealistic vision. It is real, possible, and could just come down to one day where we all agree to change a light bulb. To learn more, download the SCA Green Guides here.
