Water is one of the world’s most precious natural resources and our coffee can require a lot of it to grow. At NESCAFÉ, we recognise the water needs of local communities. Today, NESCAFÉ is supporting farmers to grow coffee with solutions that aim to protect water resources.
For example, in Vietnam, we’ve helped farmers use 50% less water for irrigation than previous practices, helping maintain the same productivity, and provided smart weather apps to tell them when to turn on the taps and when to turn them off to help conserve water for their communities. In our Vietnam coffee factories, we’ve helped to improve water efficiency and saved the equivalent of over thousands of Olympic sized swimming pools of water every year. Using less water in coffee production helps improve water conservation in local communities, and supports saving water. That’s why NESCAFÉ aims to continue to help farmers do more with less water.
NESCAFÉ wants to keep coffee fresh, and our customers informed, while making a positive difference. NESCAFÉ is working to improve the sustainability of our packaging in line with Nestlé's ambition of 100% recyclable or reusable packaging.
In 2025, 95% should already be achieved. By refilling your glass jar with NESCAFÉ’s light-weight soft packs, you can help reduce your waste with a packaging that uses 97% less packaging weight per gram of coffee, compared to our NESCAFÉ Gold Blend 200g jar. NESCAFÉ is committed to using more recyclable paper for its in-store print ads. All those initiatives will help Nestlé to reach the ambition of 1/3 reduction of virgin plastic by 2025. Every positive change helps to make difference.
NESCAFÉ® inspires to change in how its coffee is grown, sourced, manufactured, packaged, and consumed. Every time you enjoy your favorite NESCAFÉ®, you are supporting a global initiative to help the environment and inspire others to do the same. Every day, NESCAFÉ® is on a journey towards a circular economy.
