In 1996 Office Coffee Solutions began with the drive to become a leader in the coffee retail and service industry by providing professional full kitchen solutions with premium customer service. This innate leadership mission has pushed us to be at the forefront when committing to corporate social responsibility policies. From sustainable suppliers, local charity initiatives, and even within our own team, our practices remain responsible from top to bottom.
How We Keep Your Coffee Experience Green
Going Local, Ethical & Healthy: We offer carefully sourced, quality product options that provide our customers with a wide selection of Local and Sustainable offerings. We also have a vast array that are certified Fair Trade, Direct Trade, Rainforest Alliance, Compostable, Biodegradable, and Recyclable. Additionally, we ensure our line-up provides options that include Health Conscious, Kosher, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Organic varieties.
Industry Leading Waste Management SolutionsThere are endless ways to get coffee from a bean into a mug and each of them leaves a different type of waste. While many companies struggle to find a sustainable compromise, we offer industry leading programs to responsibly manage every form of coffee and kitchen waste. Some of our programs include:
Waste to Energy Program for general pod/coffee waste, a TerraCycle Recycling Program for all your single serve waste, or choose no challenging waste at all, by shopping from our line of fully compostable pods and beans, supplied in 100% compostable packaging!
Choosing A Sustainable Service Provider
We approach our social responsibility with a holistic framework, aiming to integrate it into every aspect of our business and services. Here are a few highlights to check out, that will give you the peace of mind in knowing that you’re choosing an industry leading sustainable provider:
Carbon Footprint: From our work with the Carbon Farmer, Office Coffee Solutions is now officially Carbon Neutral as we offset our carbon emissions by planting trees in the Canadian Boreal Forest. Read more about the Carbon Farmer project here.
Our Waste: As a company, we are 95% ZERO WASTE to landfill!
Collaboration: Alongside our outside work to improve our environmental impact, we also turn out attention inwards and upwards, by providing training and education to our whole team on sustainability as a whole. This includes regular company-wide paid volunteering events, having a Green Bean Team that innovates and engages each other to innovate in sustainability for our industry, training on handling waste management, and taking care of our most valuable assets – our loyal employees.
It’s All in the Details: Come and check out our newly renovated open-concept and energy efficient facilities, decked out with reclaimed Ontario barn wood furniture that was hand-crafted by a local artisan, a plethora of greenery & plants everywhere, historical artifacts from the coffee industry, and much more. We pay attention to the details both internally and externally, it’s just who we are.
We're extremely proud of our unique partnership with BullFrog Power
Office Coffee Solutions is proud to partner with Bullfrog Power, Canada’s leading green energy provider, to choose green electricity for our offices and green fuel for our entire fleet.
Bullfrog’s Green Electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Bullfrog’s generators put green electricity onto the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity we purchase.
- Bullfrog Power’s Green Fuel is an earth-friendly, renewable alternative to fossil fuel. The organization sources from biodiesel producers that repurpose waste streams from food and feed manufacturing, and cooking oils from restaurants and kitchen facilities. Bullfrog ensures renewable fuel is injected into the Canadian fuel system on our behalf, displacing gasoline and diesel litre-for-litre.
Through our partnership with Bullfrog, Office Coffee Solutions is reducing our impact on the environment, supporting the development of new, community-based green energy projects across Canada and doing our part to lead the way to a cleaner, healthier world.
