SustainabilityKeurig Green Mountain’s employees are helping us brew a better world as we work toward our ambitious 2020 sustainability targets. Our people 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.
Here are some of our Sustainability benefits and programs that employees can participate in:
- Community Action for Employees (CAFE) program - Each full-time employee gets up to 52 paid volunteer hours each year to support community programs. Our volunteer programs are essential to employee growth and our overall success.
- Source Trips – Each year we send nearly a hundred employees on company-sponsored trips to visit coffee-growing and brewer manufacturing communities in our supply chain. Over the course of two decades by traveling to countries like Peru, Brazil, and Costa Rica, employees learn about our resilient supply chain and gain a deeper appreciation for our products.
- Matching Donations – We match employee donations to charitable organizations up to a certain amount per year.
- Efficient Home Incentive – As part of our robust benefits package, we encourage responsible energy use by offsetting the costs of home energy efficiency investments.
From our team
“I was drawn to Keurig because of its strong values, specifically, Brew a Better World. Based on my personal belief system and my professional background, my personal mission in life is to make the world a better place. Keurig enables me to do this through our paid volunteer time so I can mentor high school and college-aged students to help them achieve their academic goals.” Irene, Quality Engineering Manager
“As a coffee roaster, this trip will make me be a better roaster just from watching the love, labor, and pride of the people of Peru in harvesting the green coffee that is vital for my job. I don’t want to waste a single bean because I know how hard it is to get it to me. I’ve always been interested in coffee, but I now have a new passion in learning everything I can about coffee.” Kevin, Coffee Roaster, 2014 Source Trip Participant to Peru
