Nespresso has adopted solutions for recycling and reusing aluminium to give its capsules a second life

At Nespresso we have always worked to offer the best coffees in the most sustainable way, respecting the environment and local communities. From the cherry to the coffee cup we take care of every part of the process so that our principles are respected. As such, using aluminium is a conscious choice that contributes to the quality and sustainability of our coffees.

Nespresso uses aluminium because it is the best material that exists today to preserve the freshness, flavour and quality of its coffees. In addition, aluminium is very valuable from a sustainability point of view. It can be endlessly recycled, and it is estimated that 75% of all the aluminium produced is still used today. Aluminium can be reused in a wide variety of products, from cars to computers, because its properties do not change during the recycling process, in which only 5% of the energy needed to produce new aluminium is used.
