NKG’s Responsible Business Program
Defining sustainability — and success.
Responsible conduct and sustainability have always been integral to the 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 NKG’s 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 key objectives (highlighted in the boxes on the right), along with nine supporting strategic sub-goals.
NKG Verified addresses Objective 2, “Growing impact in our supply chains,” as well as Goal 4: “Leverage technology to create sustainable supply chains.”
NKG Bloom addresses Objective 3, “Improving farmer livelihoods,” and contributes to Goal 6: “Enable smallholder farmers to maximize their incomes.”
