Nestlé ranked first in coffee sustainability in the new 2023 Coffee Brew Index published today in the Coffee Barometer report. This report recognizes that Nestlé has a cohesive and comprehensive coffee sustainability strategy and that its policies, objectives, and actions incorporate social, environmental, and economic dimensions of coffee production. It also acknowledges Nestlé's dedicated investments to support its work.
"This is recognition for our long-term commitment to coffee sustainability," said David Rennie, Nestlé's head of Coffee Brands. "Through our flagship programs, the Nescafé Plan and the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality program, we are working every day with coffee farmers to help ensure that the farming and production of coffee is sustainable and socially and economically inclusive. We are committed to continuously progress and bring new approaches to sustainable coffee farming."
Effective addressing of social and environmental impacts requires well-defined corporate strategies, bringing together elements like transparency, traceability, supplier engagement, and procurement practices.
The 2023 Coffee Brew Index is supported by Solidaridad and Conservation International and is coordinated by Ethos Agriculture. It has been published for the first time in the Coffee Barometer's biennial report and analyzes the sustainability strategy of the world's top 11 roasters.
