Last year our intern Elaine Li wrote a great case study about an incredible Guelph company. Since 1997, Planet Bean has set out to be Guelph’s coffee company focusing on fresh roasted coffee. Not only does their coffee differentiate themselves from competitors, their operations are grounded in sustainability. With two locations in Guelph and a retail business selling wholesale coffee, they believe that ecological sustainability is not only understanding that the earth resources are finite and must be protected but that their business should be restorative – not just having a low impact but a positive impact. Through their Vision and Company Value’s it is clear that sustainability is at the very core of Planet Bean.
While spending the semester researching Planet Bean Elaine quickly figured out how committed the business was to meeting as many of the 17 United Nations SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals) We’re posting Elaine’s case study so you can read about how Planet Bean is taking 14 of the SDG’s into consideration in their daily operations, an incredible commitment to our community, and our planet.
