REFLECTION OF OUR BELIEF IN TRANSPARENCY AND COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY BUILDING
We follow a simple yet honest three-step membership acceptance process to maintain our program's integrity and avoid greenwashing.
Step 1: Auditing
Our Climate-friendly Coffee Auditor (CCA) will contact you with initial questions to discover the climate-friendliness of all coffees served at your coffee business. The auditing will be solely based on two climate-action frameworks: Climate Wave Coffee Solutions and Climate Wave Basics.
Step 2: Reporting.
Your coffee's Climate Impact Report will be presented, and the next practical steps will be proposed. If you already have at least one climate-positive coffee, we will proceed directly to the next step. If not, we will work with your existing coffee provider to identify climate-positive coffee from their offerings and recommend that you switch to that climate-positive coffee. After switching, we will proceed to the next step.
Step 3: Membership offered
We will proudly welcome you to be a member of Climate-Positive Cafe Collective. You will gain access to all the benefits of the collective.
MEMBERSHIP & AUDITING FEE
We want this program to be accessible to every changemaker, so we perform all the above three steps free of cost.

1. to serve at least one Certified Climate Positive Coffee, also called Climate-Positive Coffee,
