Because a Nespresso cup of coffee is about great taste but is also a great way to make a difference. Each seed is a chance to empower communities and protect the environment, and each sip is proof that these sustainable practices help us reach superior coffee quality now, and for future generations to come.
Through the AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program, Nespresso supports coffee farmers to adopt and improve practices, increasing the resilience of farming communities and landscapes, while protecting the future supply of high-quality coffee.
The looming climate crisis demands urgent, concrete actions. In response, Nespresso has committed to offering all consumers a carbon neutral cup of coffee by the end of 2022.
Through the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) we are committed to the responsible sourcing and usage of aluminium, bringing positive impacts to biodiversity, communities and our climate.
