Europe’s number one coffee event, World of Coffee Dublin, owned and organised by SCAE, is set to host the first ever Sustainability Forum. This important new feature will bring added value to what is already Europe’s premier speciality coffee event.

The new Sustainability Forum is to become the hub for discussion at World of Coffee which will be held at Dublin’s RDS from 23-25 June. The forum will include key talks on the economic, environmental and social challenges that the industry faces with regard to sustainability, as well as debate, innovation and knowledge sharing throughout the event.

Indeed, a large number of SCAE members have already made enormous strides in protecting the industry for generations to come.

According to Alberto Polojac, chair of the International Development Committee: “The creation of a sustainability policy is just the beginning of an exciting road ahead for us working towards new initiatives, each designed to facilitate the transfer of knowledge, research and innovation for the general benefit of everyone working in the industry.

“Our community is a very proactive one and we all have a desire to help and educate and doing this at World of Coffee is the perfect environment,” Polojac added.

Ireland is home to one of the world’s most sustainable food industries and visitors to World of Coffee Dublin, which is sponsored by BWTwater+more, will be able to learn from some of the pioneering food businesses which are at the forefront of sustainability on our island. The Speciality Food Hall, supported by the Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance (IFSA), will be located next to the Sustainability Forum, providing visitors with easy access to a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Surrounding the main stage area, several of the world’s leading associations and charities in sustainability will also be on hand to discuss ground breaking trends from other industries and market sectors and share some of the lessons they have learned.

Sustainability Awards

The event will also feature SCAE’s latest awards programme, the Sustainability Awards where hard work and creativity will be recognised along with acknowledging the difference that SCAE members have already made towards ensuring the coffee industry and its impact on the world are more sustainable than before.

Details of the Sustainability Awards, including how to nominate and vote will shortly be released by SCAE –
