Tchibo merits recognition for its clear and well-defined sustainability initiatives and investments within its supply chain. The company exhibits strength in its labor, social and climate-related strategies and activities. The Tchibo Joint Forces! initiative encompasses a wide-ranging portfolio of 20 projects. These projects address various economic aspects, quality enhancements, certification support, social engagement, and productivity and environmental concerns. The Truemorrow program, a recent addition, operates as a data-driven endeavor in collaboration with Enveritas. Its primary objective is to comprehensively comprehend supply chain issues in diverse origins, with the explicit purpose of formulating targeted action plans. There exists room for improvement in Tchibo’s endeavors to prevent deforestation and in its efforts to enhance the economic viability of coffee farmers. It is important to note that the latest sustainability report from Tchibo dates back to 2021, so the ongoing advancements may not be fully reflected in this assessment.
