  • 1. Fact sheet: About Ecolaboration™ At a glance • Nespresso has launched Ecolaboration™, a consolidation of all of its sustainability efforts in coffee, capsules, machines and across its entire operation into one concerted programme. Within the Ecolaboration™ framework Nespresso is making the following three commitments by 2013: • To source 80% of its coffee from the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Coffee Program, including Rainforest Alliance certification of the farms; • Nespresso will put systems in place to triple its capacity to recycle used capsules to 75% • To reduce the carbon footprint of a cup of Nespresso by 20% taking into account the whole operation from the farm to cup Nespresso pioneered the concept of portioned coffee with the goal of providing the very highest quality coffees with maximum convenience. Today Nespresso has become the international reference for premium portioned coffee and aims to be the preferred and respected coffee company worldwide. In this context Nespresso developed a unique sourcing program for sustainable quality coffee, tailor-made for the Nespresso business model. As Nespresso continues to grow it is committed to reassure its stakeholders and Club Members that the products and services the company provides not only offer the highest quality and value, but are also delivered in ways that are sustainable for the long-term, requiring the balancing of economic, social and environmental outputs. Nespresso is committed to ensuring sustainability throughout its operations. Nestlé’s unique sustainability framework Creating Shared Value has provided a pioneering platform for the Nespresso sustainability programme. In 2003 Nespresso launched a groundbreaking partnership with the leading environmental NGO in sustainable agriculture Rainforest Alliance – the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Coffee Program – committed to ensuring highest quality and sustainability in its coffee supply chain. The main focus of this Program is to help farmers to achieve the very highest quality of coffee that serves both to help Nespresso achieve its mission of delivering coffees of supreme quality, whilst at the same time helping to improve the standard of living for farmers and their families and protecting the environment that supports them. Now six years later, after a thorough strategic review and stakeholder consultation, Nespresso is extending its sustainability commitments through its Ecolaboration™ framework, a platform for partnership with the many business partners, stakeholders and innovators who contribute to the continuous improvement of the sustainability of the Nespresso value chain. Nespresso Ecolaboration™ provides a networking framework to bring together key stakeholders, thinkers, consultants, technical experts, NGOs, business partners and others to collaborate around new ideas and innovation, which will serve to improve the sustainability performance of Nespresso. Such networking will give rise to specific Ecolaboration™ commitments and framework agreements between Nespresso and its key partners, with the articulation of measurable objectives and initiatives to be accomplished within certain timeframes. The aim is to share these Ecolaboration™ commitments with stakeholders and to report back periodically. In addition the Ecolaboration™ framework will be instrumental in establishing multi-stakeholder events and forums around specific topics such as aluminium and coffee supply chains. Within the Ecolaboration™ framework Nespresso is making the following three commitments:
  • 2. • Nespresso is taking the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Coffee Program to the next level, through a formal Ecolaboration™ with Rainforest Alliance, committing the partners to sourcing 80% of Nespresso coffee from the Nespresso AAA Program, including Rainforest Alliance certification of the farms in the Program by 2013. • Nespresso is launching the AluCycle™ Initiative with a twin commitment. Firstly, Nespresso is working with the International Union of the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) – the largest membership environmental organisation in the world – to co-convene an industry roundtable on improving the sustainability performance of the aluminium used for the Nespresso capsules. Secondly, Nespresso will put systems in place to triple its capacity to recycle used capsules to 75% by 2013. Achieving this recycling rate will need the active cooperation of Nespresso Club Members. • Nespresso estimates that the total C02e emissions generated from its operations is 82 grams of CO2e per cup1. This includes coffee cultivation, transportation, capsules, packaging, production centres, machine components and assembly, offices, business travel, commuting to and from work, and boutiques. By 2013 Nespresso is committed to reducing its carbon footprint per cup by 20%. A key driver behind this commitment will be the establishment of the VerTech™ Network - a sustainable technology Research and Development project set up by Nespresso as part of Ecolaboration™ to design the green machines of the future. 1 This figure is awaiting peer review.
