Nespresso voted world’s most sustainable coffee company

The World Finance Magazine has voted Nespresso the “Most Sustainable Company in the Coffee Processing Industry 2021”. With this award, the international jury recognizes Nespresso’s achievements in sustainability over the past 30 years.

Through its Sustainability Awards, launched in 2019, the World Finance Magazine honours companies for their commitments to environmental protection and sustainability. “In particular, the jury acknowledged Nespresso’s alignment with the Paris Agreement, its contribution to 11 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), its holistic sustainability approach and its roadmap towards carbon neutrality and circularity,” explained Monika Wojcik, Head of Special Projects at the World Finance Magazine.

Sustainability is deeply engrained in Nespresso’s DNA and the company is proud to see its efforts recognized with this prize. The judging panel called out our partnership with the Rainforest Alliance to create the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program, our unique coffee sourcing model, our leading role in the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative and our capsule recycling ambitions among many other initiatives. 

Nespresso continues to be a pioneer in data-based sustainability analysis which was also recognized by the World Finance Magazine in their decision, with judges looking into the company’s analysis of its environmental impact and biodiversity protection. 

“Sustainability is at the heart of what we do. I’m proud of the achievements we have already made in scaling sustainable coffee farming and recycling provision, in enabling industry wide capsule recycling, in reducing the Nespresso carbon footprint per cup and in agroforestry efforts in the coffee producing regions. I am very happy to see these recognized by the World Finance Magazine.  Innovation and collective actions will help us accelerate in this decisive decade. Businesses must be part of the solutions and Nespresso will continue to focus on being a force for good to preserve the future of our planet and the lives of people” said Nespresso Head of Sustainability, Jérôme Perez.
