Responsible conduct and sustainability have always been integral to our work at Neumann Kaffee Gruppe, as coffee connects people, communities and their natural environments all over the globe. Their health and wellbeing are fundamental for our long-term success. In 2020, the NKG Board of Management initiated the creation of a Responsible Business Program, in order to more intentionally define NKG’s objectives in these areas, as well as its commitments to meeting them.
Ultimately, a cooperative effort between the Board and colleagues in departments across NKG identified four focus areas, along with nine supporting strategic sub-objectives.
NKG Bloom addresses focus area 3, “Producers”, and contributes to Objective 6: “Improve farmer livelihoods through value-added services.”
NKG Verified addresses focus area 2, “Supply chains”, as well as Objective 4: “Enhance sustainability performance within our supply chains.”
