Sustainability

Engaging Our People and Communities

Keurig Green Mountain’s employees are helping us brew a better world as we work toward our ambitious 2020 sustainability targets. Our people are the ones who will drive us forward and they are critical to our success. We strive to make a difference on important social and environmental challenges, while encouraging our employees to connect more deeply to these issues and with their communities. Indeed, one of our targets centers specifically around workforce engagement:

  • Engage 100% of employees to understand our vision and values and present opportunities that allow them to contribute to our targets.

Supply Chain
We believe strongly that when our people thrive, our business thrives. And so do our communities.

We continue to support local communities and nonprofits through grants, volunteerism, and product donation programs that benefit our communities, engage our employees, and strengthen our business.


Please see the Resilient Supply Chain section for information about our programs and activities that contribute to our supplier communities (e.g., at the farms that grow the raw ingredients for our beverages and at the manufacturing facilities that assemble our beverage brewers).




Supply Chain
In fiscal 2014, more than 400 of our employees participated in Water Restoration events, removing 17,100 pounds of trash and metal debris and 813 tires.
Our benefits program aims to improve personal, professional, physical, and financial wellness, enhancing the overall health and well-being of our employees — and improving the health of our Company as a whole.
Each year, we send dozens of employees on Company-sponsored trips to visit coffee-growing communities. In fiscal 2014, for the first time, the trips included visits to facilities in Asia where Keurig® brewers are manufactured.
Our Employee Ambassador Program gives select employees the opportunity to work a series of shifts in our one and only retail store. The program offers a chance to gain new perspectives alongside real world consumer interactions.
Our unique Community Action For Employees program — better known as CAFE — entitles every full-time employee to 52 paid volunteer hours each year during work. Employees volunteered more than 57,000 hours in fiscal 2014.
Over a period of just two years, our Montreal plant went from an injury incident rate of 13.05 — three times higher than the Company average — to 2.65, the second lowest of any Keurig Green Mountain manufacturing facility.

We believe strongly that when our people thrive, our business thrives. And so do our communities.

We continue to support local communities and nonprofits through grants, volunteerism, and product donation programs that benefit our communities, engage our employees, and strengthen our business.
