Human rights, living income for farmers, living wages for workers, environmental protection and climate change, hunger and water scarcity
The organic boom, the sharing economy and fair fashion — Tchibo is part of a disruptively changing world that has profound implications for the future. We have decided to embrace this challenge. After all, it gives us the opportunity to evolve as a company and re-create our business model in harmony with nature’s and people’s needs. The great issues of our day — human rights, living income for farmers, living wages for workers, environmental protection and climate change — call for strong voices that will speak out in support of a more equitable world. As a family-owned company with Hanseatic roots, it is our responsibility to raise our voice and be part of a movement that tackles these problems with actions as well as words. This is something we’ve been doing for 14 years.

Supply chain transparency
Global supply chains are rarely straightforward and often quite complex. The same is true of the supply chains in the Tchibo portfolio. Hundreds of thousands of suppliers, subcontractors and farmers are involved before our products reach the shelves.
A high level of transparency and traceability in the supply chain is also essential if we are to manage our sustainability activities. In addition, consumer protections and regulatory frameworks continue to evolve, which is another factor underlining the importance of transparency in the supply chain.
