Arvid Nordquist

Our sustainability work

Arvid Nordquist has always maintained a clear focus on taste. However, today the flavour experience is not just limited to the tastebuds on the tongue or the aromas we take in. More than ever, we eat and drink with our conscience, which means that thoughtfully produced coffee simply tastes better.

All our coffee comes from sustainability certified coffee growers, guaranteeing cultivation that takes account of people and the environment. The coffee beans are carefully chosen by our buyers to meet our quality standards. Our roastery is environmentally certified in accordance with ISO 14001, under which we constantly work to reduce our environmental impact, with external auditors verifying our work. We also offset the environmental impact that remains.

All this gives our coffee an even better aftertaste. We call this our People Planet Coffee manifesto.

“Really good coffee is more difficult to come by than most people think. Every little bean that ends up on the store shelf has been carefully selected by Arvid Nordquist’s buyers, and then lovingly roasted at our facility in Solna.”

100% Sustainabilty certified coffee

Arvid Nordquist wants to ensure that working conditions are fair and that consideration is shown to the environment throughout the entirety of the production chain. We act against discrimination and child labour.

Coffee production generates emissions of carbon dioxide during cultivation, transport and roasting. At Arvid Nordquist Coffee, we work actively to reduce these emissions and our impact on the environment. We compensate for the carbon emissions we have not yet managed to tackle through tree-planting schemes in coffee-growing countries.

Our internal environmental work

For us, sustainability means taking responsibility for the environment, the people and the economy of our own organisation, as well as the whole of our value chain. We also work on gradually reducing our overall impact on people and the environment through clear targets all the way along the value chain, for example regarding production, transport, packaging materials and office environments. We then offset the impacts that remain through climate compensation schemes.
