WE'RE ON A MISSION. JOIN US
WE'RE COMMITTED NOW, MORE THAN EVER, TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. THAT'S WHY WE'RE ALSO B-CORP CERTIFIED.
We use aluminium to protect the quality and freshness of our coffees from the adverse effects of
light, air and humidity. It is also robust, yet lightweight and can be infinitely recycled,
meaning the aluminium can be remelted and reused to make new products time after time.
The aluminium can be recycled to make beverage cans, automotive parts, bikes and other everyday objects.
We are committed to the responsible sourcing and production of aluminium, and are one of the seven founders of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) established in 2009 with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The ASI has driven traceability in the aluminium supply chain and established the first standard covering critical issues for the entire aluminium value chain, including biodiversity management in mining and the protection of indigenous peoples’ rights as well as specific criteria to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and manage water responsibly in production.
Did you know ~75% of the aluminium ever produced is still around today?
In November 2018, Nespresso became the first company to use the world’s first ever responsibly-sourced, ASI certified aluminium, supplied by Rio Tinto. The use of ASI certified aluminium is an important milestone towards reducing the impact that the world’s second most used base metal has on the planet.
NESPRESSO TAKES RECYCLING UP A GEAR WITH BICYCLE MADE FROM CAPSULES
Nespresso has partnered with Swedish lifestyle bike brand Vélosophy to produce a stylish bicycle made from recycled aluminium coffee capsules. Created for conscious-living coffee lovers using the aluminium from recycled Nespresso capsules, Vélosophy have re-imagined their classic model in bright purple in a nod to Nespresso’s popular Arpeggio coffee. RE:CYCLE will delight Nespresso fans with its capsule-shaped bell and cup-holder basket giving them the chance to enjoy their favourite drink on the go.
SUSTAINABILITY IN BUSINESS
At Nespresso, our mission to become a complete sustainable business and provide 100% carbon neutral coffee by the end of 2022 is in full swing. As a team, we're accelerating our commitments to offer consumers a way to drink an eco-friendly cup (or two) not just in store, but in the comfort of their own home.
