Time & Location
About the Event
Can you have it all? How businesses can find the balance between people, planet, and profit.About this Event
From coffee shops to retail, it's no surprise that businesses play a key role in leading the charge for sustainability and eco-friendly practices. But how do you balance taking care of the planet and people while also making a profit? Cohosted by Tenfold Coffee Company and Refinement House, we invite you to join us for a conversation with a few local Houston business owners who are also trying to balance a triple bottom line - people, planet, and profit.
A list of panelists and an agenda will be available a few days before the event.
This event is cohosted by Tenfold Coffee Company and Refinement House.
Tenfold Coffee Company was founded by Jacob Ibarra, a native Houstonian who built a career in coffee for 15 years in Seattle and Melbourne before returning to his hometown to open Tenfold. After his travels around the world sourcing coffee from various farms, Jacob was challenged to find ways to create a better, more sustainable coffee supply chain that not only delivered a beautiful cup of coffee on the cafe side, but also ensured that the people and planet were taken care of on the producer side.
