Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017)

Here are some of the reasons why Reunion Island Coffee Ltd. was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017):

  • Reunion Island Coffee is Canada's largest coffee roaster that is entirely powered by green energy through its partnership with Bullfrog Power -- the company recently achieved "Steward" status, meaning they purchase over 1,000 Mwh annually
  • Reunion Island Coffee works with the Trees for the Future organization to help rural communities restore their tree cover -- for every pound of its organic Rainforest Alliance-certified Sierra Verde coffee sold, the company plants 2 trees, helping to plant over 545,000 trees worldwide (and recently committed to a 5-year agreement to continue the project)
  • Reunion Island Coffee continually increases the use of certified coffees, including Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance, to promote sustainable, environmentally sound and ethical business practices in its industry
