IMPACT REPORT | 2017

LETTER FROM THE CEO

I’m continually amazed by the incredible efforts
set into motion by great-tasting chocolate.

OVER THE LAST 3 YEARS WE HAVE DONATED MORE THAN $1,400,000 TO OUR GIVEBACK PARTNERS

Each year throughout our 25-year history, ESC’s commitment to species, habitats and humanity around the globe has continued to grow. This was no different in 2017, as we were able to donate more to our annual, nonprofit conservation partners than ever before; experience our commitment to Fairtrade in person through a trip to West Africa; and see the efforts of gifted funds through partner initiatives come to fruition across multiple continents.

Every ESC purchase contributes to a global goal. 10% of our annual profits are distributed to our annual GiveBack partners, who use funds to fuel conservation efforts worldwide. In 2017, we helped species big and small by supporting the Rainforest Trust, Wildlife Conservation Network, Xerces Society and African Wildlife Foundation, alongside three of our previous partners who continue to benefit from our mission. Together, among many, many other accomplishments, we’ve been able to support:

  • Discovery of a new species of shark
  • Implementation of extensive anti-poaching efforts to protect African elephants
  • Bringing of cheetahs into the global conservation limelight
  • Steps taken to fight global ivory sales

I invite you to read on and discover the amazing influences of the organizations we partner with, and the impact they have on species and communities.

Looking forward to an incredible 2018,

Curt Vander Meer, CEO
