Excellence with zero CO₂ impact

Our coffee could not be really excellent without caring for its carbon footprint. For this reason, our capsules are crafted with zero CO₂ impact.

Pure excellence from now on.

The new Lavazza CO₂ Neutral Capsules 

Our carbon neutrality approach starts by reducing emissions along Lavazza's entire value chain. In 2020 we began our journey by offsetting direct emissions and achieving complete CO₂ emissions compensation.

This is part of our bigger commitment toward sustainability named Blend for Better. It embraces many projects following the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations for 2030 in 4 key areas: Care for the environment, Spin a virtuous cycle, Open up opportunities and Educate for change.

What does it concretely mean?    

Our carbon neutrality approach starts by reducing emissions. As we are conscious that all emissions cannot be reduced at once, Lavazza uses carbon offsetting on the residual emissions by supporting many projects, like the one in Perù focused on the protection of the Madre de Dios forests from the pressure of human settlement, or the Kariba Forest Protection project in Zimbabwe and the Guanaré Forest Restoration in Uruguay. We offset our annual carbon emissions in relation to the volumes of capsules sold, that are equivalent to the following examples:

Here are some examples of offsetting related to Capsules compatible with Nespresso* Original machines.

CO₂ Neutrality, we’re on the way    

Lavazza is one of the top players of agri-food industry in the world. That’s why producing our best quality coffee is just a part of our mission, as it would be pointless without considering the way we do that.


Our commitment is doing the best we can to use sustainable resources, ensure fair work lives to coffee cultivators and, of course, reduce CO₂ emissions in our supply chain.

For example, all the activities related to Lavazza capsules compatible with Nespresso* Original machines support the Madre de Diòs project in Perù, while the Lavazza A Modo Mio capsules production is committed to support the Uruguayan project of reforestation Guanaré.
Let’s go together.
