                 MADE RESPECTFULLY

Sustainability starts with sustainable production

We’re respecting the planet by working to make all our coffee production more sustainable. That means encouraging agricultural biodiversity on the land, saving water and working to reduce carbon emissions at every step of the way from farm to factory.

Our targets and ambitions

Made Respectfully

CARBON: Neutralising our carbon emissions from coffee suppliers and operations. 
We have a clear target and roadmap to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and halve them by 2030. 

WATER: Conserving water on farms, mills and households. 
We have focused on reducing water used across our operations.

ENERGY: We are committed to improving our environmental impact in everything we do. For example, more than 60% of the energy powering our NESCAFÉ coffee factory is renewable energy from bio-energy sources, including our own spent  coffee grounds. 

Learn more about how our coffee is Made Respectfully

  • We're spicing up coffee farming

    Sometimes we advise our farmers to plant crops other than coffee! Like avocados, chilis and nuts. Agricultural biodiversity is good for the land, and it's good for our partner farmers.

  • We’re putting less water in our coffee

    Our coffee is often grown in places where water’s scarce, so we’re helping our farmers get smarter with how they use it. Coffee’s important – but water conservation is vital!

  • We’re steaming ahead

    Our efficient factories burn waste coffee grounds to make the steam to make our granules. Whenever you make a cup of NESCAFÉ, enjoy it knowing we’ve reduced our carbon emissions by half over the last ten years.

  • Our Nescafé factory runs on coffee too

    More than 60 per cent of the energy used by the Gympie factory comes from renewable sources, including used coffee grounds. Talk about an energy hit!
