GCP Collective Reporting on Sustainable Coffee Purchases

Through GCP’s Collective Reporting, Roasters & Retailers are committing to transparently reporting their sustainable coffee purchases and acting now for the future of coffee.

GCP has conceived and launched a leading-edge reporting program supporting Roaster & Retailer Members and ICO London Declaration Signatories to annually and collectively report upon their sustainable coffee purchases. Through the program, coffee Roasters and Retailers apply aligned reporting metrics that illustrate leadership, achievements and progress  to continually increase  their purchases of sustainable coffees from diverse origins worldwide.

Why GCP Members participated in GCP Collective Reporting

“At JDE Peet’s, we welcome the transparency the second edition of the GCP Snapshot provides.
We remain committed to our goal of 100% responsibly sourced coffee by 2025 which includes piloting and innovating in new sustainability approaches that are designed to actively address priority issues, improve farmer livelihoods and safeguard the future of sustainable coffee.” 

Nadia Hoarau-Mwaura 
– Sustainability Director, JDE Peet’s

“Melitta Group is aiming for a Coffee of the Future, i.e. a coffee which enables and fosters an attractive future perspective for all actors in the sector. To achieve this ambitious target, a joint and pre-competitive engagement is needed.
The GCP Snapshot strengthens transparency about the use of sustainable cultivation standards, its strengths, and potentials for further improvement.” 

Stefan Dierks
– Director Sustainability, Melitta Group

“Demand for sustainable coffee is a key driver towards a better and more resilient coffee sector, with farmers in the forefront. This report enables greater demand transparency, and we applaud all participating companies. We hope more roasters and retailers will join us in future reporting rounds, and that we see a substantial demand increase for sustainable coffee from everyone all around the world.”  

Marcelo Burity
– Head of Green Coffee Development, Nestlé 

“At Strauss Coffee we believe that transparency and collaboration is vital to promoting sustainability in the coffee sector. This is the reason we choose to participate year after year in GCP’s Snapshot report. Sustainability and improving the lives of coffee growers is high on our agenda and the GCP report is a good platform to showcase small part of what we do through procurement, alongside the support we provide in More Than a Cup where we address real specific needs of the projects’ participants and create positive impact on farmers’ lives.” 

Rafi Camhi
– Supply Chain Manager SCBV HQ, Strauss Coffee

“Transparency is one of the main values of our company.

We believe that by sharing information in a transparent way, we contribute for a global vision on the transformation path towards a more sustainable coffee industry.
In this way, Supracafé moves Beyond a cup of coffee”. 
Samuel F. Ricardo Ruiz 
– Chief Sustainability Officer, SUPRACAFÉ

“Progress through industry collaboration is a key part of our sustainable coffee strategy. We only represent a relatively small proportion of our suppliers’ total production, which is why we joined industry efforts with more buyers, making commitments on purchasing sustainable coffee which will help producers make the improvements we seek.”

Peter Rodgers
– Responsible Sourcing Manager, Tesco
