[O]utstanding work in the field of sustainability within the coffee industry can often go unnoticed. But each year, one project, business model, and individual are acknowledged for their work in the field with a SCA Sustainability Award during the Re:co Symposium. The 2019 winners include:

  • Project – “Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation and climate resilience at Yayu Biosphere Reserve” by Union Hand-Roasted Coffee. The award will be accepted by Pascale Schuit, Union’s Sustainable Sourcing Manager.
  • Business Model – Agricafe S.A. / Fincas Los Rodriguez. The award will be accepted by Pedro Rodriguez.
  • Sustainability Champion – Esperanza Dionisio Castillo

“This year’s awards reflect collaborations that happen across geographies, cultures, and supply-chain roles,” says SCA Chief Sustainability Officer Kim Elena Ionescu, “and I’m thrilled to be able to celebrate a kind of innovation that benefits all of us.”
