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.
At the end of December 2013, we reached our 2013 sustainability commitments:
In 2013, Nespresso sourced 84% of our green coffee from our unique AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program.
At the end of June 2012, our capacity to collect used capsules for recycling by putting in place collection systems reached 76,4%, surpassing our initial commitment to reach 75% by 2013 one year ahead of plan. We estimate that our collection capacity reached 80% at the end of 2013.
We reduced the carbon footprint of a cup of Nespresso coffee by 20,7%, meeting our initial target of a 20% reduction by 2013 set in 2009.
Through Ecolaboration™, Nespresso has made good progress, reaching each of our 2013 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.
