Join Mary at SUSTAINABILITY LIVE LONDON
Mary will soon be taking centre stage at the SUSTAINABILITY LIVE LONDON event on Wednesday 7 September, where she will deliver a keynote, titled: “How effective collaboration is helping Nespresso make coffee a force for good.”
During her time on stage, Mary will explore the crucial role that collaborations with like-minded organisations have played in maximising the impact of sustainability initiatives – from Podback to the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality Program, which involves 140,000 farmers across the world.
Nespresso believes that coffee can be a force for good and is working with over 50 different partners to drive transformative action and scale its impact on climate, communities, and circularity.
Nespresso is committed to making a positive impact. To achieve this, the company sources coffee from unique regions, working in partnership with over 70,000 farmers across the world. By working with the farmers, Nespresso helps them achieve high-certification standards – for example in water management, biodiversity, and fair worker treatment – through long-term partners Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade international.
The company also offers personalised services to Club Members: from delivery and repair to customer care and recycling systems.
