Description

Our guests on the January 18 Conference Call are Paul Turek and Brett Struwe of Caribou Coffee. The topic is "Caribou Coffee's 100% Rainforest Alliance Certification"

In 2011 Caribou Coffee became the first major coffeehouse retailer in the US committed to sourcing 100% of their coffees from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. The Rainforest Alliance Certified seal is a symbol of trust and high sustainability standards, indicating that workers on Rainforest Alliance Certified farms receive decent wages, have access to medical care, clean water, dignified living conditions and schools for their children, and that the coffee has been harvested and processed responsibly, protecting the surrounding environment and wildlife.

Rainforest Alliance Certified farms meet the rigorous environmental, social and economic standards developed by the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN), a coalition of independent, nonprofit conservation groups that promote productive agricultural systems, biodiversity conservation and human development.

Our guests, Paul Turek, Caribou's Vice President of Global Supply Chain, and Brett Struwe, Senior Director Coffee Sourcing and Operations, will share Caribou Coffee's story of committment to creating better communities around the world through their business model.

Upcoming Interviews in the Businesses Doing Good series:

February 15 Businesses Doing Good features Ron Hogue "Creating a Beyond Profit Culture."

From Sustainable to Flourishing Businesses and Communities

Today businesses are going beyond "sustainability" which reduces the ecological footprint, to "doing good" in the communities where they are based and in places where they offer their products or services. This is a movement toward flourishing businesses and communities.

This series of conference calls on the third Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. Central Time lifts up examples of business as an agent of community benefit. Dr. Glenn Barth, our host, will interview the guest in the first half of each conference call and then open the lines for callers to ask questions in the second half of these highly interactive one hour calls.
