DOING IS EVERYTHING

It is important to us to make recycling your capsules and protecting the environment as easy as possible. That's why Nespresso introduced its own recycling system in Austria in 2009.

WHY ALUMINIUM?

The aluminum capsule protects the freshness and fine aromas of Nespresso coffee from:
Oxygen
Light
Humidity

Our recycling partner ARA will take care of the collection of your used Nespresso capsules.
For organizational and hygienic reasons, this free service is based on a consumption of approximately 2,000 capsules per month at the location.

SUSTAINABLE USE OF ALUMINUM

Nespresso is committed to the sustainable use of aluminum and is a founding member of the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative (ASI). ASI is committed to the sustainable procurement of bauxite and aluminum production.

The ASI standard addresses critical aspects of the entire aluminum value chain, including the protection of biodiversity in resource extraction and the protection of indigenous peoples' rights.

RECYCLING, THE FINAL STEP IN A SERIES OF CONCRETE MEASURES FOR MORE SUSTAINABILITY

As a supplier of premium coffee, we bear responsibility for the world in which we live. Our responsibility does not end with the enjoyment of coffee or our commitment to recycling.

Nespresso is committed to acting responsibly and making a positive difference wherever possible. For our coffee farmers, but also for society and the environment.
