In 2008 we installed our energy cabin. This is a containerised wood pellet boiler which provides all of our hot water and heating for the building. We burn 13.5 tonnes of pellets each year which provides us with 60kWh gas units.
Since 2011 Java Republic is a proudly Carbon Neutral company. We were the first purpose-built Carbon Neutral Roastery in the world. Every year we engage in different projects worldwide that help combat global climate change and support local communities.
We are delighted to bring you our new Java Republic branded KeepCups. Convenient, stylish and easy to clean, KeepCups are a fantastic way for you to join us in our drive for sustainability. Not only that, but we will offer you a 30c discount in our cafe’s when you order a drink in a Java Republic KeepCup!
Now available to all of our customers and partners.
When you order a takeaway coffee in our cafés, we will only serve it to you in one of our compostable cups. They are also available to all our customers and partners. They are a key part of our ongoing sustainability plan, helping us to reduce our general waste to landfill year-on-year. In 2018 alone, we sold 1,585,200 cups.
We offer a 20c discount on tea and coffee if someone asks for it in a reusable cup (regardless of whether or not it is a Java Republic one).
The unique design of our building has saved 4.03W/m2k.
Through the building design we sought to maximise the passive solar gains through insulation, attempting to make the building as air-tight as possible by using ventilation correctly thus avoiding heat loss. We also have a good site position in terms of geographic placement to take advantage of daylight by being south facing. We have a huge expanse of glass and we concentrated on the layout to maximise the passive solar gains.
We give away our hessian sacks free to customers for school projects, council projects, garden centres and more. In 2017, we saved 9,000 sacks from going to landfill.
We bag our coffee grinds (approx. 5 tonnes each year) and offer them free to the public to use in gardens as a natural fertiliser and slug repellent. In addition to this, 100% of our coffee chaff goes to compost (approx. 3 tonnes each year).
We have reduced our tea and coffee packaging by switching from 500g bags to 1kg foil bags and we save an average of 7,894 metres of foil per year.
By switching from our larger green tea boxes, to our fully recyclable white boxes, we save an average of 5,000 kgs of cardboard per year.
At our roastery and cafés we segregate all waste. Composting bins were introduced in 2016 for the disposal of food waste and packaging that can be composted.
Our ethos, which forms the backbone of everything we do, is Coffee with a Conscience.
Our newest blend is sourced directly from Rwandan farmers. We support the Rwandan community by paying the contributions of the farmers we get our coffee beans from to the national health insurance scheme. In total, 1,004 Rwandans benefit from our contributions.
We have also recently partnered with Oberstown Children Detention Campus, providing the young people there equipment and barista training, thereby giving them the best possible chance to move on with their lives in a positive way after they leave the facility.
