Corporate and social responsibility
We believe that implementing our values and driving the company’s success cannot be considered without a sincere commitment to sustainable development, which must be demonstrated daily in all areas of environment, economy and society:
- Respect for mankind is at the heart of our principles. It must drive the way we and our partners work.Whenever possible, we choose to partner with local suppliers.
- We expect our co-workers and people wishing to join us to care about our environment, and we offer in-house training and take action to keep this environmental awareness alive.
- We have implemented a strict waste management programme, validated by a certified body. We choose our partners according to strict criteria so as to make sure that their supply chain, production capabilities and waste management facilities operate with minimal impact on the environment.
- We offer our Key Accounts on-site storage solutions for used capsules and collection facilities so that these can be incinerated.
Thanks to Nespresso’s AAA Sustainable Quality™ and Ecolaboration™ programmes, we know that the coffee we offer our clients is cultivated in the best possible conditions for both the farming communities and the environment. As of the end of 2012, 70% of Nespresso’s coffee was thus sourced from the AAA Sustainable Quality™ programme.
