MILAN — The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) announces the finalists for the 2023 Sustainability Awards, recognizing excellence in sustainability across the industry. The 2023 Sustainability Awards consist of three categories: Individual, Business Model, and Project, recognizing outstanding work in the field of sustainability, promoting sustainability within the coffee world while inspiring others to initiate similar endeavors.

The projects, business models, and people receiving these awards are not only dedicated to confronting the enormous challenges facing the specialty coffee industry—from climate change to gender inequality—but also collaborating across geographies, cultures, and value chain roles, and sharing the lessons they have learned for the benefit of the entire coffee sector.

After receiving 16 Project, 27 Business and 14 individual submissions this year, a committee comprised of SCA staff has selected the finalists in each award category. Winners will be announced in March 2023, and recognized at Re:co Symposium, April 19-20, 2023.
