WHAT, WHY & HOW?

The Responsible Cafes Stronger Together Cafe Summit is all about driving positive change in the cafe industry to increase customer engagement, reduce waste and carbon emissions, secure sustainable supply chains and drive cafe profitability. If the last year has taught us anything, we know we are stronger working together and creating collaborative impact – nearly as strong as your morning piccolo!
Our environment and natural ecosystems are under huge pressure – never before have we needed to take such urgent action. In 2020 there was a dramatic increase in the use of single-use plastic consumption due to fear around community transmission of Covid-19 and many cafes struggled to remain open for business. The goal of this summit is to inspire cafes to become small business leaders in their community and they drive environmentally sustainable and socially responsible practices, while being an economically profitable businesses. 
Working with a team of sustainability consultants, small business coaches, environmentally responsible brands and services combined with world class leading cafes, Responsible Cafes is proud to present this innovative series of online events.
