The Nespresso Ecolaboration™ Program is committed to continuous improvement in sustainability.
At Nespresso we know that ensuring a future supply of highest quality coffee means protecting the environment and supporting farming communities. The Nespresso Ecolaboration™ Program brings together NGOs, consultants, academics, technical experts and business partners to improve our sustainability performance from cherry to cup.
Since 2003, Nespresso has partnered with the Rainforest Alliance to build the innovative AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program. The program ensures highest quality coffee cultivation in ways that are environmentally sound and beneficial to farming communities.
Through our Vertech™ Network (R&D teams, machine suppliers, designers and sustainability experts) we are designing greener machines for the future. To achieve our goal of reducing CO2 emissions, we are examining new energy supplies and ways of recycling waste materials. For example, our latest machines are equipped with automatic power-save or power-off functions.
As part of the Ecolaboration™ Program, Nespresso has made a commitment for 2013:
- to source 80% of our coffee from the AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program
- to reduce the carbon footprint of a cup of Nespresso Grand Crus coffee by 20%
