Our Green Scorecard

We use a tiered-rating system to assess our coffee portfolio and identify opportunities to continuously improve our supply chain. Our goal is to move all green coffees in our Marketplace to Verified Living Income. We will evaluate and share our performance every year as part of our annual impact report.
