Sustainability and responsible conduct have always been integral to our work at NKG, as coffee connects us with people, communities, and their natural environments all over the world. Driven by this responsibility, our strong corporate values and the latest industry developments, the Responsible Business Program (RBP) was launched in 2020.
The RBP sets out four focus areas and defines nine strategic objectives for our work, building a robust framework for our group’s sustainability efforts. We commit to make significant progress towards these objectives in the upcoming years.
In line with the importance of these topics, the RBP is fully supported by our shareholders, Board of Management, and the operative management of NKG worldwide. While the program is led and coordinated by the holding company Neumann Gruppe GmbH in Hamburg, the strategic objectives are implemented in close collaboration with the group’s operative companies and adapted to their organizational set-up.
The strategy is based on and embedded in our general work in the fields of corporate responsibility, sustainability, and business ethics and centralizes a multitude of NKG efforts. Beyond the strategic goals and commitments, NG and its subsidiaries engage in various industry partnerships that contribute towards an equitable and sustainable coffee industry.
