Partnering for Lasting Change
Keurig Dr Pepper boasts a deep-rooted commitment to partnering with coffee-growing communities to improve livelihoods and safeguard the future of coffee. We met our 2020 goal of engaging one million people in our supply chain to significantly improve their lives and have longstanding partnerships that continue to drive for even more impact. For example, since 2014, we have invested more than $5 million in the Blue Harvest program, coordinated by Catholic Relief Services, to promote sustainable farming practices and increase access to clean water for coffee farmers and communities in Central America. This program has trained more than 4,500 farmers to apply water-smart practices on their coffee farms, improved water quality for more than 145,000 people and saved more than 131 million liters of water through water systems repair and new water stewardship practices.
Inclusive Growth for Smallholder Farmers
Keurig Dr Pepper’s participation in the Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG) coalition provides synergies with our coffee supply chain impact investments. In 2020, our Partnership for Sustainable Coffee project – implemented by Root Capital – was chosen to be a part of B4IG’s Accelerator program as a successful model for supporting smallholder farmer businesses within company supply chains. B4IG continues to create new collaboration opportunities for companies to build a more inclusive supply chain in coffee and beyond.
We offer a full range of coffee brewers that fit any lifestyle or location, and each of our Keurig® brewers has been engineered through continual innovation to deliver a consistent, convenient and great-tasting coffee experience.
Responsible Business Alliance
We’re members of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), the world’s largest industry coalition focused on corporate social responsibility in global supply chains. RBA members commit to a common code of social, environmental and ethical industry standards. We assess our key suppliers against the RBA Code of Conduct using the RBA’s Validated Assessment Program, and we work closely with them to make improvements as needed. In addition, we perform yearly conflict minerals due diligence to gather information from our suppliers about any possible conflict minerals in our products. These measures and results are available here.
Supplier Code of Conduct and Related Policies
Our KDP Supplier Code of Conduct specifies universal requirements that apply to suppliers from any part of the world and for any product supplied to KDP. The Code is reviewed annually and is our first step to engaging suppliers on important topics like protecting human rights and the environment. Learn more about our policies here.
