Nespresso has launched what it claims are the first coffee capsules made using 80% recycled aluminium, as the company continues its journey towards a circular business model.
The first capsules to be made with the new packaging is the Original Line Master Origin Colombia coffee line.
“We are constantly challenging ourselves to improve the sustainability and circularity of our operations, including the way we source, use, and recycle materials,” said Jérôme Pérez, Nespresso head of sustainability.
He added: “Reaching 80% recycled aluminium in our capsules is a significant milestone, and something we have worked hard to achieve together with our suppliers.”
The launch follows the introduction of new fully recyclable boxes for Nespresso machines, made from 95% recycled material, earlier this year.
