Nespresso certified as B Corp
Coffee-brand Nespresso has been certified as a B Corporation. It joins the 4500 other companies that are working to change their social and environmental impact and to use their business power to make changes in the world.
It scored 84 out of 200 on the B Impact Assessment, taking it past the minimum score of 80 required for the recognition. The certification covers the entire company, meaning that Nespresso’s operations across 38 markets have been certified. The brand’s approach to sustainability, and its partnerships with the Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade, were key justifications for the B Corp certification.
“B Corp certification reflects a 30-year Nespresso commitment to sustainability, transparency and responsible business,” said Guillaume Le Cunff, Nespresso CEO.
“We are immensely proud to be joining a community of like minds who share our belief that profit and purpose go hand in hand. This certification brings added value for our customers and affirms to Nespresso fans that their favourite coffee brand is doing business the right way.
“Most importantly, B Corp certification inspires us to do more. It strengthens our commitment to our vision that every cup of Nespresso coffee has a positive impact on the world.”
Nespresso was welcomed into the certification by B Lab Switzerland founder Jonathan Normand, who congratulated the brand for its efforts to boost sustainability.
“The B Corp process is a rigorous and independent assessment of a company’s impact on people and planet, looking at everything from its carbon footprint to the way it treats employees,” Normand said. “To achieve B Corp certification is a major milestone for Nespresso. I want to offer my congratulations and wish them well as they continue in their sustainability journey.”
The B Corp logo will be displayed on Nespresso products to enable consumers to make consciously sustainable choices with their purchasing.
