Must read

MILAN – On December 8 at 9am PST/5pm GMT, the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) will host a webinar discussing the latest SCA Research report, released in collaboration with Whittier College, titled “Carbon and Coffee: GHG Emission Reductions Progress and Strategies Across the Value Chain.”

The ongoing threat of climate change, and the impact it is expected to have on coffee yields worldwide, is of particular concern to the global coffee sector in 2022.

Earlier this year, the team at Whittier College partnered with the SCA to publish a new research report; “Carbon and Coffee: GHG Emission Reductions Progress and Strategies Across the Value Chain,” available in English and Español.

This report aims to highlight some of the key tools, strategies, and best practices that coffee industry actors could adopt to achieve carbon emission reduction, as well as encourage more targeted conversation about verifiable methods and outcomes, in order to increase proven and positive action on climate change throughout the entire coffee sector.

Join research leads Nora Burkey, Founder and Executive Director of The Chain Collaborative, and Dr. Cinzia Fissore, Associate Professor and Program Coordinator of the Environmental Science Program at Whittier College, for a webinar discussing the meaningful findings in the report and how to apply this research to improve carbon reduction in the coffee industry.

Nora and Cinzia will also be joined by representatives of producers mentioned in the report: Pedro Manga, Sustainability Coordinator for Caravela Coffee; Melissa Wilson Becerril, Impact Manager at Cooperative Coffees; and Stephanie Alcala of RGC Coffees. The webinar will be moderated by the SCA’s Sustainability Director, Andrés Montenegro.
