OUR COMMITMENTS

1/3 less virgin plastic by 2025

We are constantly improving the design of our capsules and machines to use less virgin plastic everywhere possible.

Discover our initiatives

Reduce

Reduce plastic by lightening the weight of our capsule

By the end of 2022, we will have reduced the amount of polypropylene in our capsules by 13% with no compromise on the quality of our coffee and beverages. For a consumer, this is equivalent to 1.5 months worth of capsules saved per year.

As an example, the weight of our Café au Lait capsule will go from 3.3g to 2.9g, saving 0.4g of plastic.

Reduce

Reduce plastic by lightening the weight of our capsule

By the end of 2022, we will have reduced the amount of polypropylene in our capsule by 15% with no compromise on the quality of our coffee and beverages while achieving the lightest capsule yet.

Recover

Increase the use of recycled plastic

We are increasing the usage of recycled polypropylene in our capsules to 33% by 2025 and using 33% recycled ABS in our machines and other non-food contact plastic parts to maximize the use of recycled plastic.

Recycle

Improve collection & recycling rates

We cooperate with local infrastructures to develop collection and recycling schemes.

Rethink

Taste the future

We're introducing NEO, our next generation of coffee shop experience at home, with paper-based pods and sachets.

Increase the use of recycled plastic and the life of each machine.

By 2025 we aim to increase 1/3 of the proportion of recycled ABS in our machines (for non-food contact parts).

All our machines are made to last. They are designed to be repairable with a warranty of 10 years minimum in collaboration with our machine partners, Krups and Delonghi.

Towards regenerative agriculture

We are committed to 100% responsibly sourced coffee and cocoa and are applying regenerative agriculture methods to improve soil health and protect biodiversity.

100% responsibly sourced coffee since 2022

TThanks to the NESCAFÉ advanced sourcing program, 100% of our coffee beans have been responsibly sourced since 2022. Our beans come from certified or verified farmers applying independent standards with social, economic, and environmental practices that support a better future for coffee.

Learn more about our sourcing programs.

100% sustainably sources cocoa by 2025

As part of Nestlé's cocoa plan, we train farmers in better agricultural practices, distribute higher-yielding cocoa trees, promote gender equality, address instances of child labour and develop long-term relationships with farming groups.

By 2025, 100% of our cocoa beans will be sustainably sourced.

20% of our coffee will come from regenerative agriculture by 2025

Regenerative agriculture is an approach to farming that aims to improve soil health and fertility and protect water resources and biodiversity. Healthier soils are more resilient to the impacts of climate change and can increase yields, helping improve farmers’ livelihoods. By 2025, we aim to have 20% of our coffee sourced through regenerative agriculture.

¿Did you know?

Milk represents 40% of our emissions. We are investing in reduced-carbon milk farming by piloting programs in Spain and France with local partners to implement practices that will further reduce greenhouse gas emissions while optimizing farming practices such as soil management, manure-feeding and digestion management.

Contribute to reduce Nestlé's carbon emission by -20% in 2025

Contributing to Nestlé's commitments, we are working hard to reduce our CO2 emissions throughout our value chain, from sourcing our ingredients, packaging our products, and designing our machines to managing our logistics, factories, and energy.

2022

Virgin plastic reduction by 1/3

Transition to regenerative agriculture

Renewable electricity in all our factories

● Virgin plastic reduction by 1/3

● Transition to regenerative agriculture

● Renewable electricity in all our factories

2050

Zero Carbon emissions

100% renewable energy in all our factories by 2025

We aim to switch to fully renewable electricity such as wind and solar in our sites all over the world by 2025. In 2022, 6 of our 7 factories were using already 100% renewable electricity.​

Improve the energy efficiency of our machines

As of 2023, our new machine models will be launched with an A++ energy rating* and a 0-watt standby function, making their energy usage more efficient

*According to Swiss energy labels.

Our first triple zero factory in Brazil

Our Montesclaros factory in Brazil was designed to reach zero gas emissions, zero waste, and zero waste of water with a circular waste management system within the factory.
