New Zealand Goals
Nespresso New Zealand is committed to ensuring we are
part of a sustainable coffee economy. The good new is
that our coffee capsules are made from aluminium, which
is infinitely recyclable. As our capsules cannot be
recycled through New Zealand's domestic waste systems,
we have - since opening our first Boutique in 2011 - made
recycling collection points available, and have worked
with a recycling plant to put in place a dedicated system
to recycle our used aluminium capsules.
Our commitment is to continually improve our
recycling program to help ensure that as many used
Nespresso capsules are recycled as possible.
We are focusing on:
Continuing to remove barriers to recycling by developing more options and easier accessibility for our Club Members.
- Collaborating with credible partners such as TerraCycle, to grow the network of collection
points throughout the NZ community.
- Education and awareness, keeping our Club Members informed about the recyclability of our capsules and the
recycling options we provide to them.
- Encouraging behaviour change, so that recycling our aluminium capsules becomes a habit.
