Global Coffee Platform recognizes ofi’s AtSource as sustainability scheme under the Coffee Sustainability Reference Code



Two tiers of ofi’s sustainability management system AtSource – AtSourceV and AtSource+ - are recognized in the 2nd  party assurance list as equivalent schemes to the newly upgraded Coffee Sustainability Reference Code (CSRC), a sector framework to advance coffee sustainability efforts collaboratively and effectively.


AtSource was one of the first private schemes recognized by the Global Coffee Platform in 2021. It offers ofi’s customers – global roasters and retailers – granular data on key sustainability metrics that allows customers to build their brand by demonstrating impact to consumers, building in 3rd party verification on sustainability performance, end-to-end traceability, carbon footprint calculations, and risk assessments that customers can address through interventions with ofi’s teams to drive real change for people and planet.


Juan Antonio Rivas, Global Head - Sustainable Business Development, ofi, said:

“This recognition marks ofi’s ongoing efforts to drive greater transparency in the sector and accelerate sustainability impact in coffee farming communities and landscapes in line with key sector concerns such as farmer prosperity and climate change.


“For our coffee customers, it allows them to report AtSource purchases as “sustainable” in line with the GCP Collective Reporting on Sustainable Coffee Purchases, thereby supporting their commitments and targets.”


As part of the equivalence process, GCP partner the International Trade Centre assessed AtSource against the GCP CSRC Code for alignment with its principles of sustainable coffee production and the needs of the sector.


Annette Pensel, GCP Executive Director, added:

"We're thrilled to have had ofi continue their coffee sustainability advancement with GCP. With the GCP recognition of AtSourceV and AtSource+ as equivalent to the Coffee SR Code, 2nd party assurance, ofi is highlighting the importance of and dedication to sustainability in their work for their customers and for coffee farming communities around the world."
