Doing Good Business
La Marzocco is committed to adopting solutions that can reduce its environmental impact. The Scarperia headquarters and the Accademia del Caffè in Pian di San Bartolo produces about 50% of their energy needs through photovoltaic panels. In 2022, the panels produced 530 MWh of green energy. The energy produced by the panels is also used to recharge electric vehicles, free of charge for all employees. There are more than twenty charging stations.
Through the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the company manages to establish its carbon footprint, meaning the equivalent CO2 emissions deriving from production and procurement operations; the calculation of emissions also includes those deriving from logistics, waste processing, the extraction and transport of raw materials, in addition to the consumption of electricity and the movements of its employees. By establishing its carbon footprint, the company can thus identify the areas on which to intervene to reduce its current emissions, in view of the 2050 goal which provides for a complete elimination of greenhouse gas emissions.
Furthermore, the company is able to offset its CO2 equivalent emissions by purchasing certified carbon credits through an environmental protection project in the Madre de Dios region, an area of high biological diversity in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. Thanks to this initiative, in 2022 the company offset 8,500 tons of CO2 emissions.
The La Marzocco Refurbished program ensures our machines have a meaningful end of life option and are never abandoned in a wasteful way. Making our repaired, refurbished and remanufactured machines accessible via this platform allows us to support the needs of other like minded circular businesses.
Bringing people to coffee origins in a meaningful way.
Since 2007, La Marzocco has been collaborating with Hemro and Probat in a philanthropic project aimed at bringing people closer to the origins of coffee, to the source of the raw material that underpins the entire supply chain. La Marzocco donates a portion of the profit from the sale of the machines to Songwa, a coffee plantation in Tanzania. The company’s funding made it possible to build four schools, a bridge over the Nzofe River and four wells for drinking water.
diversity, equity and inclusion
“A room full of people who look and act the same are rarely going to change the world. By embracing our differences, we can build something stronger.”
With partners in more than 120 countries around the world, advancing workplace diversity is more important today than ever before. La Marzocco embraces its multicultural identity, and the Company is committed to building a team of professionals with a variety of backgrounds, skills, and views. Simply stated, La Marzocco believes inclusion can open minds to new ways of thinking that may be hidden – ways that may never be discovered alone. Therefore, only by embracing differences can you achieve the extraordinary
