Must read

GLASGOW, UK — Climate change is having a detrimental impact on global coffee production, with drastic consequences for our producers around the world: as a result, at Matthew Algie they have had every reason to take a proactive and holistic approach to mitigation and adaption.

One Carbon World is an initiative which aims to reduce climate change and assists organisations in achieving carbon neutrality over the next four years.

Working with One Carbon World (, Matthew Algie verified their carbon footprint methodology and results, and offset their emissions by purchasing certified credits from a tree planting project in Uruguay and a wind energy project in India.

As a result, they are proud to be the first roastery in the world to achieve the Carbon Neutral Gold Standard.

As part of their commitment to net zero emissions, they have also now joined the UN Climate Neutral Now Initiative.

Launched in 2015, this scheme aims to encourage and support all levels of society to take climate action to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as set out in the Paris Agreement.

Matthew Algie’s journey is ongoing, and they will continue report annually on this – and all our sustainability initiatives. You can read the latest report here:
