our 2030 carbon pledge and commitment to sustainability
A solar powered Roastery, electric vehicles, LDPE4 recyclable bags, the Bristol Living Wage, working with local charities, Fair-trade certified, Soil Association Organic Certified, on our way to being B-Corp Certification... you get the gist.
Our two roastery spaces are now fitted with solar panels, which provide more than the total amount of energy that we use in a year – these are also being used to charge our fleet of seven electric vehicles for deliveries and site visits. Our roasters (one from 1968 and another from 1991) have recently been refurbished to increase efficiency, with new modulating gas burners, improved insulation, and new control panels – we have also changed our production schedule to ensure that no energy is wasted waiting for temperature changes in roasters, and reducing gas usage by up to 60%.
As we made the decision to truly encourage sustainability in all areas at Wogan Coffee, it was a no-brainer to partner up with Zedify; a sustainable delivery partner that could help us get us towards our goal of carbon neutrality by 2030 (being seriously reliable and friendly is always an added perk). Zedify swing by our Bristol roastery every day on their cargo bikes, driving not only sustainability and lower emissions, but also helping to cut congestion and create a quieter, safer, more liveable city.
Zedify provides next day deliveries to almost all of our local Bristol website customers, allowing locals to get coffee to their doorstep using zero emissions. With over 4,200 deliveries made a year, Zedify save Wogan Coffee around 832kg of CO2 every year, and contributes 420 hours work for a Living Wage employed rider.
