IT'S TIME TO THINK OUTSIDE THE CUP

It's as simple as this, at Nespresso we love coffee. And when you love something this precious, you care for it.

Climate change threatens coffee and communities who grow it. That's why we've been committed to sustainable farming since 2003. It's now time to go further, with a global shift to regenerative agriculture. This is how we protect the precious coffee we love.

THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON COFFEE

Global warming and unpredictable weather can affect coffee quality and yields, putting the futures of coffee and coffee farmers at risk. The area suitable for coffee production could be cut in half by 2050.

LET'S KEEP PROTECTING THE COFFEE WE LOVE

Putting care at the heart of what we do is why we created the Sustainability Quality Program™ AAA almost 20 years ago, together with the Rainforest Alliance. But we need to do more, faster.

EMBRACING THE POWER OF NATURE

Nespresso is now transitioning towards regenerative agriculture on a global scale. A way of growing and cultivating coffee that uses nature's ability for self-healing and regeneration.

BIODIVERSITY

Protecting and restoring wildlife habitats.

CLIMATE

Lowering coffee production GHG emissions.

COMMUNITY

Improving farmer livelihoods​.

SOIL

Restoring soil health.

WATER

Protecting and conserving water.

OUR REGENERATIVE JOURNEY

The Nespresso regenerative farming transition is anchored in four key principles.

NATURAL ECOSYSTEMS​

Supporting an agriculture that is mindful of the ecosystems, protecting wildlife habitats and conserving water.

AGROFORESTRY

Planting native trees in and around coffee farms that enable carbon sequestration as well as income diversification for farming communities.

HEALTHY COFFEE TREES

Replacing ageing coffee trees with more resilient varieties better adapted to prevailing​ weather conditions.

COMMITTED TO NET ZERO BY 2050 AT THE LATEST

Achieving carbon neutral certification for every cup of coffee in 2022 has enabled us to understand the scale of the challenge. Reaching net zero, even as our business grows, demands bold action. By 2030, we plan to reduce our GHG emissions by 50%*. Making collective efforts to transition AAA farmers to regenerative agricultural practices is a critical priority.

* against the 2018 baseline, through reduction and insetting actions even as our company grows.

TEAMING UP WITH GLOBAL COFFEE EXPERTS AND THE RAINFOREST ALLIANCE
