As people and businesses alike become more aware of their carbon footprint, measures to preserve the environment are more commonplace. In fact, even top coffeemaker manufacturers are implementing environmentally friendly techniques into their daily business activities.

For instance, Curtis, a leading commercial coffee brewer manufacturer, has implemented numerous initiatives aimed at environmental conservation. The company views their “Go Green” policies as a passion rather than a commitment or needed task. The Curtis Company believes that environmental awareness reaches further than political correctness or savvy marketing strategies. Since its inception 70 years ago, the company and its “go green” policies have evolved, and Curtis takes these initiatives seriously, from small office efforts to large plant tactics.

Curtis believes in “the 3 r’s:” reuse, recycle, and reduce. To reduce energy consumption, fluorescent lights have been replaced with skylights where available, and motion sensor lights have been installed in both offices and factories. The company strives to reduce paper waste by utilizing online filing and paperless departments. All Curtis products are packaged in recycled materials, and boast soy-based ink printing. In this way, the company reuses resources. Incoming packaging material, like Styrofoam, air-filled bags, and cardboard corners, are reused whenever possible. Scrap metal that cannot be used in the company’s manufacturing plants is recycled. In addition, Curtis has implemented a universal waste program for proper disposal and recycling of numerous items, like batteries. In addition to the “three r’s,” the Curtis Company makes other conservation attempts. For example, when a machine requires maintenance, Curtis uses vegetable-based oils in repairs.

Additionally, Curtis products are designed with environmentally friendly features. For instance, the commercial coffee brewer’s insulation efficiently retain heat. In order to not exceed the desired temperature, which would use more resources, Curtis’ commercial coffeemakers boast digital heat sensors that offer the user a more accurate temperature reading. When not active, Curtis commercial coffeemakers enter an idle state, during which they consume less energy. The components are AC powered, which require less energy than DC powered components.

Like Curtis, Bunn is also an environmentally conscious coffeemaker manufacturer. Believing in responsible design, Bunn is strongly committed to reducing its carbon footprint. Their “Respect Earth” program recognizes that each business impacts the total environment. Bunn incorporates conservation in both their daily business operations and products.

For example, the company partners with local utility companies to closely monitor energy consumption. Bunn has recently implemented numerous changes, such as installing fluorescent lighting in place of older lighting fixtures. Most workstation equipment, including computers, is powered down at the end of the workday. The fleet trucks run on 11 percent biodiesel fuel, and trucks have been equipped with generator sets to reduce engine idle times.

Bunn products also boast numerous environmentally conscious features. For one, most Bunn coffeemakers have an energy saver mode, where, in some instances, the tank heater is shut off during long idle periods. In addition, Bunn uses biodegradable packing material as opposed to Styrofoam whenever feasible. Bunn also implements a strict recycling policy in both their factories and offices.
