Our Values: Green and Clean

We’re excited about the positive impact we can have on sustainability, and the many ways we can help our clients meet their Corporate Social Responsibility commitments. With hundreds of customers serving thousands of cups a day, together we can make a real difference. Our coffee range majors on certified Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade coffees, but this is just the start. Working with bio-bean  http://www.bio-bean.com/ we offer a grouts collection service that sees the grouts turned into energy-savvy coffee logs for fires and multi-fuel stoves.

We supply reusable mugs as well as compostable disposable cups. Our Roast & Ground boxes are made of recycled materials and can themselves be reused and recycled. Your drinks machine will be installed with energy efficiency settings, including sleep modes. We offer low-consumptions machines, too. And our hygiene and maintenance contracts ensure your machine keeps operating in tip-top energy efficient condition.

Of course, Roast and Ground’s CSR commitment extends to our offices and warehouse too. Operationally we’re a carbon neutral company, audited annually, and off-set our emissions. We recycle paper, reuse packaging, minimise electricity use, utilise thermostatic and timed heating controls, and more. We also like to support our local community, particularly Alfriston Day Centre, a local day centre for older residents.
