NESPRESSO COFFEE TO BE CARBON NEUTRAL BY 2022

September 23, 2020

As a company passionate about sustainability, we know how important it is to partner with brands like Nespresso® Professional who have strong sustainability commitments. We are a proud supplier of Nespresso® Professional coffee solutions to the office environment throughout UK & Ireland* (postcodes apply) and here’s one of the many reasons why…

 

Nespresso® today commits that every cup of Nespresso® coffee, both for at-home and for professional customers, will be carbon neutral by 2022. This new ambition builds on more than 10 years of work during which Nespresso® has reduced its carbon emissions and compensated the remainder through agroforestry.

 

“Climate change is a reality and our future depends on going further and faster on our sustainability commitments. That is why we are accelerating our commitments to offer our consumers a way to drink a carbon-neutral cup of coffee by 2022. A coffee, made from the finest and rarest beans, sustainably sourced. I truly believe that both our business and the coffee industry can be a force for good in the world by tackling this pressing issue,” said Guillaume Le Cunff, CEO of Nespresso.

 

Having already achieved carbon neutrality in its business operations (scopes 1 & 2) since 2017, the company’s new commitment will tackle emissions that occur in its supply chain and product life cycle (scope 3).

 

Nespresso® will achieve carbon neutrality through the following initiatives: the reduction of carbon emission; the planting of trees in and around coffee farms where Nespresso sources its coffee (insetting); and through support and investment in high-quality offsetting projects.

 

This carbon neutral commitment is part of a broader sustainability ambition that will be further communicated later this year: to preserve exceptional coffees, build a resilient and regenerative coffee agriculture system, drive sustainable livelihoods for farmers and build a circular business.
