Blackstar’s Vision is to stimulate the transition to sustainability. To caffeinate the movement towards a sustainable economy. We understand our business to be a vehicle for change and we believe that great coffee can change the world.
Our goal is to create positive impact through the culture we are creating. Operationally we are moving towards more sustainable business practices. From choice of suppliers, to composting our coffee waste and promoting re-use cups. We also aim to join with others in this movement, to inspire hope and to create a spark. This is the ‘stimulate’ aspect, much more than profiteering.
‘Transition’ refers to the journey and accepting that the change required will take steps. We recognise that just because we can’t do everything now, doesn’t mean we can’t do something now. As long as we’re on the way and moving as best we can.
Lastly, “sustainability”. The much over-used and under-acted upon S-word. We interpret it holistically and based on the five capitals of sustainable development: personal, social, physical, environmental and financial. These five dimensions cover all aspects of the kind of sustainability we are working towards in our business, in our own lives, and in the world around us.
“we bring our best to everything we do, recognising that excellent efforts lead to excellent results”
“We each step up and take responsibility for the situation, whatever comes our ways, not looking to others to do it”.
“We take care of everyone, even those we disagree with and we always focus on the solution not the problem”
“We work hard for the good of others, the planet and ourselves, knowing that with strong relationships nothing is impossible”
