doin' our bit

At Locale, we’re all about people & planet. We’re passionate about running our business ethically, responsibly & as sustainably as we can. After all, we couldn’t do what we do without the Earth’s natural resources, and we’re conscious of giving back.

We’re not about greenwashing or virtue signalling; we just want to do better.

We’re mindful of the environmental & ethical impacts of our business and aim to be a positive force for change within the coffee community & beyond. It’s been a long-term goal of ours to leave the industry, and the Earth in a better position than we found it. For us, it’s a values-led approach that starts at the top & is embedded into the fibre of our company culture.

We care about people all along the coffee supply chain, from the farmer through to the barista & believe in paying a fair & equitable price for the coffees we source. Not all coffees are created equally – much the same as wine! We’re big believers in paying more to know you’re getting a top-quality, traceable & sustainably sourced brew & ensuring the farmer at the heart of producing your daily cup of coffee is being looked after too.

Sustainability forms the pillars of our ethos and is something we consider in every decision we make. We’re always looking to do our bit for the planet, our communities & the people we work alongside. It’s a constant balancing act between purpose & profit – we absolutely believe the two can & should go hand-in-hand.
