Nespresso is committed to sustainability throughout its value chain. Selecting only the world’s top 1-2% of coffee beans, Nespresso is dedicated to making every cup more than just a gourmet coffee experience, but also a “Positive Cup” that has a beneficial impact on the environment and society.
In 2003, Nespresso launched its AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program in collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance. The program seeks to ensure the highest quality and sustainability in the Nespresso coffee supply chain, while helping to improve the standard of living for farmers and their families. Today, over 80% of Nespresso coffee is sourced from AAA farms.
Furthermore, all components of the Nespresso capsule are recyclable – from the aluminium capsules to the coffee grounds within – and the Nespresso Recycling program makes it as easy as possible for Club Members to return their used capsules.
