How does Westrock make sustainability a cornerstone of our company? By teaching organic composting of coffee cherry waste to farmers. By turning tons of potentially harmful waste into rich, organic fertilizer. By requiring waste water treatment at all wet-mills with EMI (Effective micro-organisms). By cleaning water sources at all Rwanda Trading Company’s washing stations free of charge for the surrounding community. By providing low interest, long-term financing to cooperatives that switch to an eco-pulper unit, which uses 20 percent of the water used by traditional wet-mills. By having zero tolerance for child and forced labor in our supply chain.
They’re the right things to do, so we do them everyday.
