Environmental and sustainability policy

OUR FOCUS

We are committed to sustainable development to ensure that we are meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This is a guiding principle within our work. Concern for our society and environment is an integral and fundamental part of this commitment. Our aim is to reduce the impact on the environment from our operations whilst continuing to create value and deliver robust sourcing solutions for our clients. We believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors can positively contribute to business performance, as well as contributing to help build a more stable, sustainable and inclusive global economy.

In our role as a distributor, we aim to promote an ESG conscious culture in not only Healthy Bean, but also with our manufacturers or logistics partners. Through our work we are in a position to promote the wider sustainability agenda through embedding ESG elements in our screening processes and follow best practices for our employees. Our policies have mainly been defined by the Paris Agreement and the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, whose objectives are geared towards the transformation of the current economic model towards one that is decarbonised, inclusive and within the limits of the planet.

Here at Healthy Bean, we are deeply aware of the current economic and social context and the fact that it is unquestionably influenced by such challenges as climate change and the continuous loss of biodiversity. The significant and far reaching nature of these impacts requires a clear vision of the future and a framework that will allow the private sector, governments and the rest of society to act swiftly and effectively.
