Environmental Commitments

COOPETARRAZU AND THE ENVIRONMENT

We work to promote a culture of sustainable production, in the producer, the family and the community, through the implementation of good agricultural practices that help reduce the impact of the carbon footprint.

SOLAR PANELS

Coopetarrazú has a system of 96 solar panels to achieve better energy efficiency. The implementation of this technology has achieved savings of up to 22% per month in the electric billing of the administrative building and in the supermarket La Coope, It has also allowed CoopeTarrazú to evaluate the benefits of opting for alternative energy generation that contribute to reduce the impact of the carbon footprint.

MANAGEMENT OF THE BROZA OR COFFEE PULP

The management of solid and liquid coffee waste is managed in our coffee plantation and there is currently an irrigation field that uses honey water (water after its use during the wet milling process) and a composting project, which helps to convert coffee pulp in coffee Organic fertilizer and which is provided to producers to implement it on their farms, always trying to ensure sustainability in the processes.

WOOD AND WATER CONSUMPTION

With the implementation of modern technologies and furnaces, it was possible to reduce the use of firewood considerably in the processing plant, currently the average consumption is of 0.05m3 per fanega.

The processing plant also has different methods to reduce water consumption and improve its use, such as mechanical washing system, recirculation of water and incorporation of filters for proper cleaning and irrigation of honey waters (water after its use during the wet milling process).
