As a responsible company, we've integrated activities geared towards corporate social responsibility into our operations. These initiatives include adopting environmental-friendly technology, educating economically underprivileged rural youth and providing skill training and employability to them, as well as forge avenues to employ an increased number of differently-abled people with us.
Finding the potential in coffee is a key part of our success. That's why our diversified businesses find the potential in everything we do. Similarly, our CSR activities focus on finding the potential in the people, society and environment around us.
We believe that corporate social responsibility is an integral part of our operations. We are committed to offering ethically purchased and responsibly produced products of the highest quality, and serving quality coffee that is responsibly grown and ethically traded. We facilitate UTZ and Rainforest certification for our major coffee supplier's estates. The UTZ Code of Conduct is a recognized global ‘decency’ standard for coffee and production criteria for socially and environmentally appropriate growing practices and efficient farm management techniques. The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and improve livelihoods by promoting and evaluating the implementation of the most globally respected sustainability standards in a variety of fields which are designed to generate ecological, social and economic benefits.
We work hard at ensuring that what is discarded is as efficiently managed as what goes into our products. Our waste management efforts ensure that coffee by-products, husk, and wood dust are used to provide energy or act as raw material for other industries. Our lamination paper and stickers are provided to government schools for book-binding. All electronic waste is responsibly disposed.
We work through a unique partnership model wherein we have established strategic partnerships with various training bodies, non-governmental organizations, and government and leverage our relationship to provide skill training and employability to the under privileged. In states like Jammu and Kashmir and Orissa, we have provided self-improvement and vocational training to youth.
Coffee Day Global has also tied up with NGO’s such as “Enable India” to work out avenues to employ more number of differently-abled people with us. Over 150 speech and hearing impaired people are employed at our cafés, popularly called as “silent brew masters”.
Our social transformation initiatives are led by SVGH Vocational Training College (VTC) at Chikmagalur and are fully funded by our Promoter. VTC seeks to promote education to economically underprivileged rural youth and supporting them to be independent, responsible and adaptable to urban environment. VTC has trained over 2,500 students, many of whom have since joined our Group companies, including Coffee Day Global's outlets across the country. The entire expenses of the course which includes imparting education, providing food and accommodation, uniforms and transport facilities is borne by VTC.
