responsibility

When you make a brand commitment to be better, you need to do better in all areas of your operations — including the footprint you make and leave behind.

Ethical Bean is a proud founding Canadian B Corporation — a global group of organizations redefining success in business beyond the bottom line.

We only use 100% certified Fairtrade and organic coffee, which ensures our producers are shielded from the volatilities of the coffee market — and that our beans are grown free from harmful pesticides and other chemicals.

Every area of our operation is built to cut down energy use and impact. Our head office is built to the highest LEED standards, our roaster cuts emissions and energy consumption by 80%, and our partnership with Bullfrog Power allows us to run on green, renewable natural gas and bio diesel. Each year we measure our carbon footprint through Climate Smart and lastly offset any remaining emissions with Gold Standard wind offsets to maintain our carbon neutral commitment.  We were also one of the first companies to introduce 100% compostable single serve pods, and your landfills thank us.

Leave your mark but tread lightly. Simple words we live by.
