Unlocking Sustainability's Collaborative Advantage

June 24, 2020 at 08:00:00 AM · Pacific Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

The coffee sustainability landscape is undergoing tectonic shifts.

The changes reflect a growing acknowledgement that the approaches of the past have not "solved" many of coffee's most difficult sustainability challenges. But it also reflects the emergence of new data, new tools, and new ways of thinking about sustainability. In particular, this moment opens new avenues for thinking about how to activate the "collaborative advantage" through sustainability investments to create change that is larger than the sum of its parts.

This webinar is for anyone grappling with how to build a strategic sustainability portfolio that contributes to both competitive and collaborative advantages.

Join three organizations (Enveritas, Ethos Agriculture, and World Coffee Research) for a discussion of the changes afoot in coffee sustainability, and follow along with one coffee company (Peets Coffee & Tea) on their journey to build a strategic portfolio of sustainability investments and activities.

  • Coffee sustainability in 2020: Where are we now?
  • Strategic sustainability: What is it, why do it, and how to start
  • Old tools vs. new tools
  • Collaborative advantage: What it is, what it does, and examples
  • Telling your story
