Program

For 2018, NRF’s theme is ‘sustainability’, from which we will branch off into three topics: economic, environmental and workplace sustainability within the coffee industry. ‘Sustainability’ is a word that can mean many different things and if not used with intention, can mean nothing.

In September, we will explore a few different avenues as to what sustainability means for our industry: in economic terms, from the standpoint of how we can more thoughtfully conduct business in light of the serious threats that climate change poses, and what safe and inclusive workspaces look like.

Check out the ‘Speakers’ tab to keep updated on who will be exploring these topics with us in September.

Thursday, September 20th, 2018 (30 Spaces available. Separate sign-up here.)
