Life Cycle Assessment
Carbon neutrality in agricultural products
In 2009 we commissioned a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) by specialist environmental consultants, Quantis. You can read more about the LCA approach in the Carbon Footprint section. The study showed that when it comes to environmental impact, aluminium capsules that are recycled after use are the optimal way to make an espresso coffee in a Nespresso machine, among all options currently available. In 2011 Quantis conducted a new LCA study, which shows that among all options assessed to make an espresso coffee in a Nespresso machine, the Nespresso aluminium capsule that is recycled after use is the option with the lowest environmental impacts, among all those currently in the market.
