About this report
In this report, which we present on a voluntary basis, we express our intention to keep and expand dialogues with our stakeholders on sustainable management.
This important step for Buencafé is an evolutionary process that enriches the experience of our entire human team to increasingly better harmonize our work with sustainability.
To define the contents of the 2021 report (henceforth to be presented every year), the communications area proposed to the Group of Directors the topics to be addressed based on results of the materiality workshops held with the different stakeholders, and the topics addressed in the sustainability committee.
They will be assessed and approved by the General Director’s Office. The material topics defined are in line with the organization’s sustainability model, which has the coffee grower at the center. GRI 102-32, GRI 102-46, GRI 102-50 and GRI 102-52.
The following graph shows the result of the teamwork that organized the material topics according to the capacity of response and impact on the corporate strategy.

The materiality workshops held in 2021 were a very important tool to learn first-hand the stakeholders’ vision on the economic, environmental and social aspects of Buencafé.
