A Discussion with Five Women Shaping Sustainability in the Coffee Industry via @dailycoffeenews

KIM ELENA: I am struck by the fact that Kelly and Tracy responded to this question in the same way. They both talk about making sure that they, as sustainability leaders in their companies, understand the functions and challenges of other departments, for example the costs and market conditions that the coffee buyers were facing at a given moment or in a particular origin. The literature on sustainability drives home how important it is for every single person at a given company to understand sustainability, but doesn’t necessarily exhort the sustainability team to understand every single function of the company.
