  • What does it mean CO₂ Neutral for Lavazza?

    The approach of our Group to carbon neutrality begins by reducing emissions along Lavazza's entire value chain, from coffee cultivation to the product's end of life throughrough all the intermediate stages. Because we are aware that all emissions cannot be completely reduced, Lavazza has begun a carbon offsetting program on residual carbon emissions, for those that could not have been reduced. In 2020 we began our journey by offsetting direct emissions and achieving complete emissions neutrality for the Group's offices and production plants. The ultimate goal is to achieve complete carbon neutrality by offsetting all indirect emissions, i.e. all emissions generated along the entire value chain from the cultivation of green coffee, from packaging, from the distribution of the final product, from the use and disposal of products.

     

    At product level, the Lavazza A Modo Mio capsules will be CO₂-neutral; this means we offset all of our annual carbon emissions related to the sold volumes. 

  • How does carbon offsetting work?

    Since climate change is a global issue, the impact of a ton of carbon emitted somewhere in the world can be neutralized by reducing or capturing a ton of carbon somewhere else - this is the principle of carbon offsetting (also named CO₂ compensation).

    This carbon reduction (or sequestration) is achieved via specific carbon projects, very often located in developing countries.

    These projects generate carbon credits, where 1 credit = 1 ton of CO₂ emission reduced or sequestrated. The carbon savings are done using internationally recognised methodologies and are regularly checked.

    In addition to the carbon reduction or carbon sequestration, some of these projects also provide other environmental, social and economic benefits such as the biodiversity preservation, employment, increase of daily salary, educational and health support. Supporting these projects is a way to improve livelihoods of local communities in a sustainable manner while tackling climate change, hence contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

  • How is Lavazza carbon neutrality strategy implemented? Why are Lavazza capsules carbon neutral?

    The new A Modo Mio carbon neutral capsules are an important step for Lavazza Group, which aims to bring all the companies and products of the group to carbon neutrality, as required by the Lavazza Group Roadmap to Zero. This path is consistent with the commitment of the Lavazza Group to adhere to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular by responding to the targets of the SDG 12 (Sustainable Development Goals: responsible consumption and production) and SDG 13 (combating climate change).

     

    Specifically, compensation projects aim at reducing or CO₂ emissions. Every ton of CO₂ reduced or abducted generates 1 carbon credit.

    Effective emission reductions (or seizures) are accurately measured with rigorous calculation methodologies and verified by third parties. After this verification process, carbon credits are issued on the market and are put available on an international electronic carbon register. B28 All operations are thus traced and publicly available. Once used for clearing purposes, credits are withdrawn to avoid double counting. The Kariba Forest Protection and the Guanarè Forest Restoration projects supported by Lavazza is certified by internationally recognized standards (VCS and CCB) to ensure the high quality and robustness of the project. Also, our climate partner South Pole in charge of all the carbon offsetting transactions ensures the respect of the offsetting best practices from project selection to retirement of the credits on behalf of Lavazza.

  • What is the goal of Lavazza carbon neutrality program? Which phases are included? What is included in the CO₂ neutrality?

    The neutrality of these capsules includes the offsetting of emissions throughout the life cycle of the product, from the cultivation of coffee to the end of its life through all stages of production, transport and disposal.

    This includes the collection of raw materials, the product manufacturing, the packaging phase, the transportation upstream and downstream, and finally the disposal phase.

  • Are there any binding legal rules relating to this choice?

    Our approach to the carbon neutrality is a purely volountary act. This path is consistent with the commitment of the Lavazza Group to adhere to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular by responding to the targets of the SDG 12 (Sustainable Development Goals: responsible consumption and production) and SDG 13 (combating climate change).

  • How is a carbon credit generated? How is it validated?

    All compensation projects aim at reducing or CO₂ emissions. Every ton of CO₂ reduced or abducted generates 1 carbon credit. The effective emission reductions (or seizures) are accurately measured with rigorous calculation methodologies and verified by third parties recognised by the UN. After this verification process, carbon credits are issued on the market and are put available on an international electronic carbon register. All clearing operations are thus traced and publicly available.

  • Are all Lavazza single-serve products CO₂ neutral?

    The new A Modo Mio carbon neutral capsules are a relevant milestone of the “Roadmap to Zero” plan which aims at reducing and compensating the indirect emissions along the entire supply chain upstream and downstream of Lavazza operations (green coffee, pack, transport, disposal).In addition, for direct emissions, Lavazza has reduced and offset its emissions at Corporate level (production plants, commercial offices, offices) since 2020. The neutralization of indirect emissions will take place gradually and will be achieved through progressive annual quotas rapresented by products & brands.

  • Why did Lavazza choose compensation projects outside Europe?

    Most of the offsetting projects that exist today are located in developing countries. The social benefits linked with these projects have a noteworthy positive impact on the local communities located where the project is implemented.

  • How is Lavazza carbon neutrality strategy implemented? Why are Lavazza capsules carbon neutral?

    With the launch of the aluminum capsules, Lavazza offers all of its most famous brands (Qualità Oro, Qualità Rossa, ¡Tierra!, Crema e Gusto and Dek), while declaring that this range of products is carbon neutral.

    This path is consistent with the commitment of the Lavazza Group to adhere to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular by responding to the targets of the SDG 12 (Sustainable Development Goals: responsible consumption and production) and SDG 13 (combating climate change).

  • Why did Lavazza choose this direction in terms of sustainability?

    For 125 years, Lavazza's approach to business has been based on the synergy between the value system and economic solidity, proved by the great commitment to sustainability. Over time, this synergy became a strategic path of product and process innovation and impact reduction aiming at greater and greater sustainability integration, consistently with the Lavazza Group's commitment to adhere to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) and SDG 13 (fight against climate change).

    We recently decided to accelerate this path because of the worsening of the climate emergency which affects everyone, including companies: latest studies show how this phenomenon could become irreversible. We should also take in consideration that coffee is an agricultural product growing in some of the most at-risk areas of the planet in terms of climate change impacts, which creates imbalances with important and direct consequences for coffee producers and their families and on production, productivity and quality of coffee.

  • Are all Lavazza single-serve products CO₂ neutral?

    This is one of the company's first CO₂-neutral product. The product's carbon neutrality includes the entire supply chain and product life cycle from coffee cultivation to end of life through all stages of production, transport and disposal.

    This is the first milestone that aims at reducing and compensating the indirect emissions along the entire supply chain, upstream and downstream of the operations under the direct control of Lavazza.

    In addition, for direct emissions, Lavazza has reduced and offset its emissions at Corporate level (production plants, commercial offices, offices) since 2020. The neutralization of indirect emissions will take place gradually and will be achieved through progressive annual quotas represented by products & brands.
