A new generation of businesses are taking a more expansive view of their mission, with people and planet just as important as profit. Join us as we welcome Dan Bailey, founder of Amavida Coffee, as he shares the story of how a northwest Florida coffee roaster has enhanced its environmental performance while improving the lives of coffee farmers across the globe.

Amavida Coffee includes four retail locations and a roaster in Santa Rosa Beach, and its products can be found in Pensacola and across the Florida panhandle. Amavida is a certified Benefits Corporation (B Corp), a classification that legally allows it to pursue values beyond just profit. The company operates at net-zero carbon emissions, sources Certified Fair Trade and Organic coffees, and its primary roaster location is fully powered by on-site solar energy.

This presentation is part of a regular presentation series on environmental issues sponsored by 350 Pensacola. Since 2010, 350 Pensacola has worked for climate education and action as the only climate-focused organization in northwest Florida. For more information: 350pensacola@gmail.com
