LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Sept. 17, 2020 — Nespresso today committed that every cup of Nespresso coffee, both for at-home and professional customers, will be carbon neutral by 2022. This new ambition builds on more than ten years of work, during which Nespresso has reduced its carbon emissions and compensated the remainder through agroforestry.

“Climate change is a reality, and our future depends on going further and faster on our sustainability commitments. That is why we are accelerating our commitments to offer our consumers a way to drink a carbon-neutral coffee cup by 2022. A coffee, made from the finest and rarest beans, sustainably sourced. I truly believe that both our business and the coffee industry can be a force for good in the world by tackling this pressing issue,” said Guillaume Le Cunff, CEO of Nespresso.

The company’s new commitment will tackle emissions in its supply chain and product life cycle.

Nespresso said it would achieve carbon neutrality through the following initiatives:

This carbon neutral commitment is part of a broader sustainability ambition: to preserve exceptional coffees, build a resilient and regenerative coffee agriculture system, drive sustainable livelihoods for farmers, and create a circular business.

Nestlé Nespresso SA is the pioneer and reference for the highest-quality portioned coffee. The company works with more than 110,000 farmers in 14 countries through its AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program to embed sustainability practices on farms and landscapes. Launched in 2003 in collaboration with the NGO The Rainforest Alliance, the program improves the yield and quality of harvests, ensuring a sustainable supply of high-quality coffee and improving farmers and their communities’ livelihoods.

Headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, Nespresso operates in 84 countries and has 14,250 employees. In 2019, it ran a global retail network of 810 boutiques. The brand currently has more than 100,000 points to collect its used capsules globally, enabling 91% of its consumers to recycle.
