Our Aspiration

As a family business, Tchibo is guided by the model of the ‘honourable merchant’: we think long-term and see it as an entrepreneurial duty to take respon­si­bility for our actions. On our way to a 100% sustainable business, we therefore take into account the effects that our material processes and products have on human health and the environment, thus safeguarding our own economic success long-term.

We firmly believe that our business must not be conducted at the expense of people and the environment.
