As Earth Day approaches, it's essential to reflect on the impact our actions have on the planet. At Café Britt, we believe that great coffee and chocolate should not come at the cost of the environment. That's why we have made a firm commitment to sustainability and have been working tirelessly to ensure that our products are not only delicious but also responsibly sourced.
Since 2013, Café Britt has been committed to carbon neutrality, and we have made significant progress every year. In the last month, we invested one million dollars to install over 1,600 mes solar panels on the roofs of our factories. These panels now generate up to 65% of the electricity we need to operate. By investing in clean technology, we are investing in Planet Earth and reducing our carbon footprint, helping Costa Rica become a carbon-neutral country.
We have also made efforts to encourage our employees to embrace our environmental commitments. They play a critical role in optimizing resources, reducing water and electricity consumption, and increasing recycling programs. We believe that every small action can make a big difference, and our employees are passionate about doing their part to support the planet.
Our farmers play an essential role in our sustainability efforts. We work closely with them to ensure that they use eco-friendly methods, such as composting and natural pest control, to produce high-quality products.
This Earth Day, we want to celebrate our commitment to sustainability with you. Whether it's by enjoying our delicious products or taking simple steps to reduce your carbon footprint, we encourage everyone to join us in supporting the planet. Stay tuned for more information on how you can get involved.
Thank you for being a part of our journey towards a more sustainable future. Together, we can make a difference.
