FORT WORTH, TX, U.S. – Farmer Bros. Co., a national coffee roaster, wholesaler and distributor of coffee, tea and culinary products, announced today that it has been awarded a disclosure score of A- for the 2016 reporting year, placing the Company as a leader among industry peers.

“Working toward a more sustainable environment and protecting our natural resources makes good business sense and is a strategic focus for the company,” said Mike Keown, President and CEO.

“We have a strong Sustainability team who works across the organization to strategically manage our environmental impact throughout the entire supply chain.”

The Farmer Brothers score of A- is based on its response to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) questionnaire, which assesses commitments to strategy, governance and stakeholder engagement to reduce carbon emissions.

The Company’s high disclosure score is based on its emissions data and leadership in reducing emissions within its industry.

“We are proud to be among the 14% of CDP reporting companies who have set emissions reduction targets beyond 2030,” commented Molly Laverty, Sustainability Director.

“Using long-term metrics helps us drive action that will contribute to long-term sustainability for our Company and our growers at origin.”

Farmer Brothers has committed to goals around specific Social, Economic, Environmental and Development (SEED) targets that align with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and CDP.

These goals include an aggressive zero-waste-to-landfill by 2017 project and setting new standards for e-waste.
