Made Respectfully

Help us tackle climate change with every cup

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 reducing carbon emissions at every step of the way from farm to factory. You’re helping us tackle climate change with every cup of NESCAFÉ you drink.

Coffee beans, avocados, chillis and nuts

UK targets and ambitions

CARBON RESPECT: 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 RESPECT: Conserving water on farms, mills and households. 
We have focused on reducing water used across our operations. For example, our UK factories have decreased their water use by over 60% since 2007. And have worked with farmers in Vietnam to maintain the same high yield from their crops whilst using 30-40% less water.

BIODIVERSITY RESPECT: Promoting biodiversity on all farms. 
We are promoting biodiversity on farms through multicropping and our Milk Plan sustainability bonus which rewards farmers for taking actions such as planting new hedgerows and wildflowers in the edges of their fields.

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.
