Coffee LENS - Livelihoods, Education and Nature at Scale

Launched in 2020, Coffee LENS is our sustainability ambition for the future of coffee. It sets challenging goals to tackle the key issues facing the coffee supply chain by 2025, enabled through structured collaboration with partners. We have achieved a number of 2021 milestones, all of which contribute to our longer-term goals.

Be the change with us: Join us on our coffee journey…

We’re looking for dynamic alliances to help scale our efforts and deliver even greater impact. There are three ways to engage:


  1. By directly contributing to existing or new initiatives, based on premiums or upfront payments. 
  2. Through AtSource: this provides customers with engagement options tailored to individual sustainability ambitions, with clear structures and accountabilities, and a predetermined monitoring and evaluation mechanism. 
  3. As a strategic partner, to support with technical expertise and resources for new and existing activities on the ground.
