At Genovese Coffee, we take our responsibility to the environment and future generations of coffee growers & drinkers seriously.
We’ve indentified and implemented some real actions that put us amongst the environmental leaders of the Australian coffee industry.
At Genovese Coffee, we’re continuing to develop our sustainable practices with the addition of the easy espresso pods into our range. Each pod is encased in an environmentally friendly, food grade filter paper which is 100% compostable & biodegradable.
The used pods can be placed directly into your home compost, further reducing the impact of the environment footprint. The outer tin is made from a fully recyclable aluminium which can be added to your everyday recycling. Additionally, the tin is nitro flushed to add longer lasting freshness to your pods.
Importing coffee from around the world, roasting & distributing it around the country requires a considerable amount of energy and can result in significant carbon emissions. We offset every one of these emissions by purchasing carbon credits from renewable energy programs across the globe. Certification of our program is provided by The Carbon Reduction Institute. It is based on assessing each one of our purchases, our processes, our distribution, our travel and even how we get to work. This guarantees that each one of our products is 100% carbon neutral.
We run on Solar Power – when the sun is out!
We have reduced approximately 60% of our electricity grid usage by installing a 60kW solar panel system to our roasting facility. During the summer months we expect to cover as much as 80%.
