Liquidline Sustainability Cycle

OPERATIONAL SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is an integral part of the way we do business. Our leadership and operational teams work hard behind the scenes to come up with new and innovative ways we can improve our sustainable practices. Here are just a few of the changes we’ve made in recent years.

Sustainable Electric Fleet at Liquidline

FLEET ELECTRIFICATION

We’re upgrading our company vehicles to electric and hybrid models to lower our carbon emissions on the road.

Solar Panels on our Roastery Roof

RENEWABLE ENERGY

The roof of our coffee roasting plant features 3,850 solar panels, which generate 1,027,250kWh of electricity, preventing 667 tons of CO2 emissions.

Compostable Coffee Cup

WASTE MANAGEMENT

We have waste reduction and recycling schemes at all our locations and encourage our customers to reduce their waste by switching to reusable or compostable cups.

Team Building

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Our employees are invested in our commitment to sustainability, with car sharing, litter picks and cycling to work all part of our company culture.

SUSTAINABLE TEA & COFFEE

Being a sustainable business is as much about the products you sell, as it is the way you operate. At Liquidline, we’re dedicated to improving sustainability from farm to cup.

Whole Coffee Bean Icon

We’ve developed a new and improved Café Bonté Triple Certified coffee that combines carbon-neutral, organic and Rainforest Alliance-certified beans.

Takeaway Coffee Icon

Since 2000 Liquidline has been partnered with Change Please, a social enterprise that transforms the lives of people experiencing homelessness through great coffee.

Coffee Bag Icon

We’re currently redesigning our coffee packaging to be more environmentally friendly, with Café Bonté Minas the first in the range to be packed in a 100% recyclable bag.

Tea Bag Icon

We’ve expanded our range of ethically and sustainably produced consumables, including offering Clipper Tea, which is 100% organic, fairtrade and plastic-free.

Sustainable Coffee Farming

ACCREDITED COFFEE SUPPLIER

Coffee has the potential to thrive in healthy, biodiverse environments, while also supporting the livelihoods of the farmers who grow it and the communities where they live. We ensure that we offer sustainable, traceable drink options, including:

FAIRTRADE

Fairtrade supports the development of thriving farming communities through better pricing, fair terms of trade and improved working conditions. This gives them more control over their futures and protects the environment.

SOIL ASSOCIATION

Organic means working with nature, not against it. It ensures lower levels of pesticides, more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment, resulting in improved biodiversity.

RAINFOREST ALLIANCE

Through creative, pragmatic collaboration, the Rainforest Alliance aim to rebalance the planet by building strong forests and healthy communities around the world.

CARBON NEUTRAL

Climate change poses a serious threat to coffee farming. By offsetting our carbon emissions through sustainability-driven behavioural projects, we can take steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

UTZ

The UTZ certification program enables farmers to use better farming methods, grow better crops, and generate more income. They learn how to improve working conditions, adapt to climate change and protect the environment.
