C.A.F.E. Practices’ Positive Impact Promotes Conservation & Human Dignity


Responsible coffee programme of Starbuck does not convert natural forests into coffee plantations for profit.

Dailycsr.com – 31 July 2018 – The new “progress report” on the “C.A.F.E. Practices” programme of Starbuck has been released by “Conservation International” an international NGO, whereby the report details out about the “positive impact” on “land conservation and human dignity”.
The report is 132 pages long, which records the programme’s impact from 2011 till 2015. The area covered in the programme is around “190,000 hectares” which were taken into conservation across twenty three countries where “C.A.F.E. Practices” are found. Moreover, no natural forest areas were touched to turn them into coffee plantations ever since the programme kick started in 2004. At the outset, the programme covered 99% of the farms that were participating.
Reports inform that the programme has been instrumental in creating a positive impact on the “lives of 1.3 million workers”, who were employed to the “farms and mills”. Moreover, the SCS Global Services reports:
“Improvements are also being documented over time, with participants earning an average 14 percent improvements in their scores.  C.A.F.E Practices-produced coffee is now on track to make up more than one-quarter of the world’s supply. SCS Global Services has been proud to work in support of the program for more than a decade, supervising the training, approval, and oversight of the independent verification organizations around the world who document participant compliance”.
