Merlo Coffee is on a mission to obtain carbon neutrality, and to get there, Head of Operations Simon Brooks reflects on its sustainability endeavours.
Brisbane-based coffee company Merlo Coffee is turning up the heat on its sustainability goals, making a very deliberate effort to become more environmentally friendly in all its business practices.
Merlo’s Head of Operations Simon Brooks says this includes everything from discounts on reusable cups and compostable packaging, to recently installed solar panels at several facilities.
“Sustainability has become a buzz word in recent years, and people are increasingly looking to companies to implement sustainable business practices. There’s no reason for businesses to not try and do the most for the environment and do their part here in Australia,” says Simon.
“Our goal this year is to reduce our emissions even further, firstly by reintroducing reusable cups back into the marketplace as COVID-19 subsides.”
To incentivise customers, Merlo is offering a free coffee on purchase and $0.50 savings on refills for customers that use a reusable cup.
Merlo is determined to keep more than three million takeaway cups out of landfill. To help reach its goal, sustainable packaging company BioPak has introduced fully compostable, eco-friendly packaging for Merlo customers.
