Aluminium has the potential to be an icon for sustainable consumption
To protect the flavours and freshness of our highest quality coffees from the adverse effects of light, air and humidity, aluminium is the best material available today. Moreover, it is robust, yet lightweight, and can be infinitely recycled.
Our decision to use aluminium for our capsules is sometimes questioned. We therefore recognise our responsibility to continue to invest in and promote its sustainable usage.
Together with IUCN and other partners, Nespresso initiated the aluminium industry’s first global standard regarding traceability (PDF, 8Mb) and socio-environmental performance. And alongside a range of local partners, we invest in dedicated recycling channels (PDF, 8Mb) as well as collective schemes, to unlock circular solutions with the aim of achieving sustainable consumption.
