Lavazza’s notable commitment to a wide array of coffee sustainability aspects, spanning multiple partnerships and investments, underscores its dedication to addressing key challenges across the coffee supply chain. The Lavazza Foundation is very active across a multitude of sustainability initiatives, boasting an expansive portfolio of activities and projects. However, it is our observation that a certain shortfall persists in the coherence and specificity of its overarching sustainability framework and goal-setting. It is important to note that this assessment draws from Lavazza’s latest sustainability report, dated 2021, and thus may not account for any potential progress made beyond the reporting period.
