The upcoming World of Coffee Dublin will play host to the first ever coffee Sustainability Forum, a new feature which will bring added value to what is already Europe's largest speciality coffee event.
The forum will include talks on the economic, environmental and social challenges that the industry faces with regard to sustainability, as well as debate, innovation and knowledge sharing throughout the event.
According to Alberto Polojac, Chair of the International Development Committee: "The creation of a Sustainability Policy is just the beginning of an exciting road ahead for us working towards new initiatives, each designed to facilitate the transfer of knowledge, research and innovation for the general benefit of everyone working in the industry. We are very excited to be leading this initiative and making this idea a reality and the hope is that we all will be inspired to implement change within our own organisation."
World of Coffee Dublin will also feature SCAE’s latest awards programme the Sustainability Awards, where hard work and creativity will be recognised along with acknowledging the difference that SCAE members have already made towards ensuring the coffee industry and its impact on the world are more sustainable than before.
