Green Mountain Coffee
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters believes in environmental and social Stewardship®. We promote public awareness of strong environmental, social and labor principles through support of a range of organizations -- Coffee Kids, Heifer International, Grounds for Health, EcoLogic Finance, the United Way, the Salvation Army and the Red Cross -- as well as libraries, religious organizations, schools, counseling centers and community food-shelves in coffee-growing communities around the world and in the communities in which our employees and customers live and work.
ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT CORE VALUES
In every decision, consider the environmental impact of our actions. Encourage a spirit of continuous environmental innovation in our products, practices and programs. Foster and promote programs that increase levels of employee environmental awareness and participation.
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is an active supporter and participant in the Businesses for Social Responsibility (BSR), an organization dedicated to aiding business in Environmental and Social Stewardship. GMCR is also an active supporter and participant in the state chapter of this same organization (VBSR).
At Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, CAFE means more than coffee. The CAFE (Community Action For Employees) program enables employees to take paid time off to volunteer in their community wherever an employee sees a need. Giving back to the community is part of our mission at GMCR. This year our employees will spend close to 2,000 hours volunteering at schools, fire departments, rescue squads, and numerous community organizations in the cities and towns where we work. Green Mountain volunteers also visit coffee growing communities in Mexico and Central America where they volunteer in projects to improve the health care and housing of coffee farmers and their families.
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is ever vigilant for opportunities to help a wide variety of charitable causes, in Vermont, in the U.S. and in many coffee-growing countries around the world.
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is committed to actions consistent with an environmental conscience in all aspects of our business operations. We at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters are proud of our Environmental and Social achievements. Join us in celebrating them, and our continued commitment to Environmental and Social Responsibility.
