Sustainability is integrated into our business


For 30 years, we have been learning how to integrate sustainability into our activities, seeking to improve our operations and generate positive impact. Today, we call this The Positive Cup.

The Positive Cup reinforces the way the Nespresso model creates shared value. Delivering long-term positive impact for farmers, society and the environment helps ensure the ongoing success of Nespresso. This results in exceptional quality coffee, cup after cup.
