When Nespresso launched Ecolaboration™ in 2009, we made the commitment to report back with openness and transparency on our progress in meeting our 2013 goals.
In June 2011, we released our Mid-term Report for our Ecolaboration™ commitments.
Three years after launching Ecolaboration™, we are on track to meet our 2013 sustainability commitments:
In 2012, Nespresso sourced 68% of our green coffee from our unique AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program. We are on track with our commitment to source 80% of our coffee from the program, including Rainforest Alliance certification, by 2013.
At the end of June 2012, our capacity to collect used capsules for recycling by putting in place collection systems rached 76,4%. surpassing our initial commitment to reach 75% by 2013 one year ahead of plan.
By the end of 2011, we estimate we had reduced by 16% the carbon footprint required for producing a cup of Nespresso coffee, compared to 2009, and against a carbon reduction target of 20% by 2013.
Through Ecolaboration™, Nespresso has made good progress in each of our sustainability commitments. But for us, sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement. We are determined to go further in the future to Create Shared Value for the Nespresso community.
