How we’ll make a difference

On average, 56% of the electricity we source at our warehouses and offices was generated from renewable sources. We continue to pursue renewable energy sourcing at our buildings.


Our fleet reduced from 7,000 to 5,000 vehicles in 2021 due to right-sizing and efficient routing enabled by an average of 37% telemetry coverage and continue expanding this program.


Our green car policy across the group aim to increase the share of fully electric or hybrid. For instance,  Oslo and Amsterdam would have a fully electric fleet by the end of 2022.

Through the Selecta Coffee Fund, we invest in farm level programs in the coffee-growing communities we purchase from to improve farmers’ livelihoods.


We implement the Supplier Code of Conduct to highest standards of ethics and  collaborate with our business partners to achieve improvement.


We currently roast around 15,000 tonnes of coffee annually, of which 58% is certified by Fairtrade, UTZ or Rainforest Alliance.


We deployed the mandatory ‘Needs Based Solutions Training’ for our solutions teams across all Selecta markets and constantly train our Joy Ambassador & Technicians.
