Impact

What does it mean to be Climate Positive?


Ethical sourcing

Ethical sourcing

Ethical sourcing is an essential component in the fight for climate justice. When purchasing coffee, we consider social, economic and environmental dimensions, with respect to conditions of the past, the present and the future. Read our ethical sourcing framework here.

Profits to climate

Profits to climate

By 2050, the world's coffee growing regions will be cut in half by climate change. As well as paying true prices, building climate resilience is another essential livelihood safeguard.

We invest all our profits in projects that build climate resilience in communities where Kua coffee is grown.

Minimum waste

Minimum waste

The coffee industry’s wrap-in-plastic then send-to-landfill model is clearly not sustainable. Low impact or circular alternatives are needed to reduce waste and connect consumers with coffee’s true environmental impact. All Kua packaging is either reusable or home compostable. For large business customers we partner with local organisations to recycle used coffee grounds.

Carbon negative

All businesses must take responsibility for their carbon emissions. Kua has been carbon negative since 2019 and is committed to measuring, reducing and communicating its business and product footprint each year. Learn more about our 200% offset program and measurement here.


Social enterprise

Halfway between a company and and a foundation. We invented a business structure to make sure Kua is always be impact-first:
