“With operation in different parts of Europe, including the UK, we know the benefits of working together over borders to develop climate smart solutions. After Brexit it will be even more important that EU27 and UK maintain a collaborative approach in order to handle the challenges ahead”, says Lars Appelqvist, CEO of Löfbergs.

The coffee roaster Löfbergs has set tough targets for its climate work, but think instruments that guide in the right direction are needed to create the prerequisites for better climate work in Europe. That is why Löfbergs together with 18 other companies have signed a letter to the Ministers of Energy in the European Union regarding updating and tightening the EU’s climate change strategy.
By purchasing organic coffee during 2014, Löfbergs's customers contributed to: • The reduction of use of fertilizer with 1,318 metric tons (reduces eutrophication). • The reduction of use of pesticides with 133 metric tons (positive for the biodiversity). • The conversion of an area equivalent to 12,600 football fields to organic production.
