We’re committed to sustainability.

Manufacturing our products has an impact on our environment both locally and globally. Our aim is therefore to act with high regard for people, nature and resources throughout the entire value chain, from fair, eco-friendly procurement of raw materials to climate-friendly logistics and resource-efficient packaging.


We’re committed to sustainable growing.

We use a variety of certified coffees such as Rainforest Alliance, Fairtrade and the EU organic label to produce our coffees. Thanks to our diverse portfolio of green coffees with a wide range of origins, we can fulfil our customers’ wishes and actively contribute to the sustainable development of the market.



We keep a close eye on our energy efficiency.

We’ve maintained an active energy management system in accordance with the ISO 50001 standard at our Berlin site since 2011. This system is assessed and certified on a regular basis, which is tradition for us. In this way, we continuously ensure consistent implementation of all our self-imposed objectives in terms of sustainable, resource-efficient use of energies as well as legal requirements.


We produce our own electricity.

We’ve been generating our electricity and required process heat with our own combined heat and power plant since 2014. Electricity is also fed into the public grid, benefiting 1,700 Berlin households. This system has allowed us to significantly lower our primary energy requirements and, in combination with our installed biomass incineration plant and the modern process systems, reduce our CO2 emissions at the site by more than 40 per cent compared to 2011.

Our coffee grounds? We use them to produce energy

We focus on our material flows and exploit their potential. We utilize the coffee grounds generated during production, thereby saving a considerable amount of fossil primary energy. The coffee grounds are used directly on site to produce process heat and steam for our production. This not only saves the resource-intensive disposal of coffee grounds, but also helps us to manufacture sustainable products.


Reduction in roasting emissions

Our systems are equipped with the latest technology to reduce odor and dust emissions. We use CO2-friendly and energy-saving technology for the post-treatment of the flue gas streams from our roasting plants. The exhaust gases are eliminated in an autothermal oxidation process and in biofilters with scrubbers. Thanks to these systems, we are pioneers in our industry and proud of it!


Environmental management

As a large production facility, we are aware of our responsibility for nature and the environment. For this reason, we have implemented an active sustainability management system, an environmental monitoring system and a waste management system.


We take our responsibility to people and the environment seriously. Not because we have to, but because we want to.


We manufacture many varieties of instant coffee at our modern production facility in Berlin.
