We are committed to reducing carbon emissions across the entire Nespresso business, from the cherry to the cup and beyond.


We are committed to reducing carbon emissions across the entire Nespresso business, from the cherry to the cup and beyond.

We are also optimising our overall environmental footprint by improving the sustainability of our operations.Since 2005, we have used a process called life cycle assessment (LCA) to understand our environmental footprint. Today, in addition to our own in-house assessments, LCA studies are conducted by specialist environmental consultants Quantis. These studies provide us with insights into five key environmental impacts: climate change, water use, biodiversity, energy consumption and human health.

LCA is a valuable tool in making decisions about how to best optimise our environmental footprint.  It allows us to understand how we generate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. And it helps us understand how best to reduce our carbon footprint within every aspect of our business, from the cherry to the cup, without creating negative environmental impacts elsewhere.  

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. To find out more click here.



Since 2009, Nespresso has reduced the carbon footprint of a cup of coffee by 20%.
