Our Think-, Do- and Be-tank
If you ever wondered how we work at su-re.co, here’s some insight.
Our ‘Think-tank’ outlines all we do is scientifically driven. Over the years we’ve had major research projects cooperating with international institutions including Stockholm Environmental Institute and UNIDO.
There is no action if we only ‘think’, so we bring our research into local action. That’s what we have the ‘Do-tank’. With our knowledge about climate change and business sustainability, we have been able to help local farmers adapt to climate change, while providing clean energy for them with biogas digesters developed by our engineering team. We want to change energy usage methods in Indonesia to become safe and clean. The ‘Be-tank’ describes our mentality of working. Our office, based in Canggu, is a conclusion of all the values su-re.co stands for. We have total transparency throughout su-re.co’s operations, including work done by current interns and alumni. Furthermore, we work as a team where everyone has an important role and value. Each member can choose their tasks themselves, which brings a more productive outcome and greater confidence about your own strengths.
To directly see our achievements, each morning we have a team meeting where everyone shares their tasks for the day. In the evening just before closing work, we talk about what we managed to do that day. This gives an opportunity to learn how to assess our own skills and time management. We are always open for new ideas which benefits our creativity.
On Wednesdays we have a special meeting where a member of the team presents their current work. This way we learn from different sectors of our company, allowing a greater understanding of all processes.
Talking about a sustainable future, of course, the sustainability of su-re.co does not end at the coffee farms. Our office is also using a biogas digester and rainwater system, aiming to save as much energy and resources as possible.
