Recycle with Nespresso Profesional

We at Nespresso have a responsibility in creating a sustainable coffee economy and accelerating circularity. And recycling our aluminium capsules plays a major role in this. This means that every used Professional capsule, along with the coffee that resides within, are given a second life.

Nespresso offers free tailor-made solutions for the collection and recycling of used Professional capsules.

Your sales representative will be able to help you find the best recycling solution for you.

A carbon neutral footprint

The guarantee of the highest quality coffee and a 100% carbon neutral footprint

In collaboration with Pur Projet, we are planting trees at coffee farms and surrounding areas, which helps us compensate for the impact of our carbon footprint related to our operations

Used capsules that are collected enable the full reuse of coffee grounds for renewable energy or natural fertiliser.

Climate protection

Agroforestry makes it possible to compensate for CO2 emissions generated by coffee crops and promotes biodiversity.

Did you know?

The portioned system and Nespresso machines are efficient because they use each time the right amount of water, coffee and energy. Therefore, our resources are preserved and your cup has a lower impact to the environment, in comparison with other methods of coffee preparation.

Renewable energy

The coffee grounds are transformed into renewable energy in a biogas plant in Henniez. During this process, the energy generated by the coffee grounds in an aluminium capsule is equivalent to the energy required to produce a new recycled aluminium capsule.
