As the largest coffee brand in the world, innovation is at the core of everything we do. We embrace the opportunities offered by emerging consumer trends. With three of the world's most iconic coffee brands – Nescafé, Nespresso, and Starbucks – we offer a great experience for everyone, while creating positive impact for society through our sustainability programs.
We continue to strive for taste and quality, and greater sustainability in our coffee. It's why we're leading the way on everything from cold brews to personalizing the coffee experience through smarter machine connectivity. Our aim: to deliver the perfect coffee for everyone.
Sustainable coffee tastes better
As the world's largest coffee buyer, we have a responsibility to support coffee farmers everywhere. It's at the heart of our Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program and our Nescafé Plan. Over the past 15 years, our combined network of more than 600 agronomists have worked with hundreds of thousands of farmers, communities, and stakeholders to help them meet the challenges of coffee farming.
Looking forward, we aim to:
Have 100% responsibly sourced coffee by 2025.
Lead the coffee industry through our climate agenda. Make Nespresso carbon neutral by 2022.
Accelerate our sustainability ambition through the Nescafé Plan 2030 by working with coffee farmers to help them adopt regenerative agriculture practices that will help reduce carbon emissions and help improve farms' productivity, with the aim of improving farmers' income.
Commit to a zero waste ambition and transition towards a circular economy model - for example, our Nespresso Original capsules are using 80% recycled aluminum.
Expand our work in sustainable agriculture.
Explore our coffee actions
Coffee is one of the world's favorite beverages and billions of cups are enjoyed every day. To safeguard the future of coffee, we must work to increase responsible farming and sourcing practices.
Climate change is reducing the amount of arable land on which it's possible to grow coffee, while water shortages are reducing yields significantly. Our Nestlé plant scientists set out to develop low carbon, drought resistant coffee varieties.
With the Nescafé Plan 2030, we have defined our sustainability ambition for the next decade. We will work with farmers to help them adopt regenerative agriculture practices that will help reduce carbon emissions and help improve farms' productivity, with the aim of improving farmers' incomes.
