What can Puccino’s do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Puccino’s is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Coffee Shops Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As Puccino’s already receives a top score in the Ethical Coffee Shops sector, The Good Shopping Guide encourages it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After sending in its application, Puccino’s will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide Ethical Mark.

However we would encourage Puccino’s to release a statement regarding its use of GMOs, gain some Organic certification, and release an Environmental Report specific to the brand in order to improve its score. If Puccino’s applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this.
