Nespresso lifestyle

Nespresso

For those who drink several cups a day, it might feel good to know that the used coffee capsules are recycled and turned into new raw material at Stena Recycling. 

As a global brand, Nespresso cares about its sustainability work and therefore collects its coffee capsules for recycling in most markets. In the Nordics, Nespresso has been collaborating with Stena Recycling for a few years now.

Confidential services

Our service for confidential information guarantees the safe destruction of materials or end-of-life products that carry sensitive information. Once destroyed this information can never be re-created, but the material – paper, electronic waste, etc. can be recycled.

Current sustainability trends in the retail industry

As demands for greater sustainability grow from both consumers and lawmakers, businesses are taking action. To help build a more sustainable profile, businesses in the retail industry want:

  • One trusted partner to provide all waste-related services – from collection and recycling to taking care of confidential information
  • To reduce their CO2 emissions and their reliance on the earth’s natural resources
  • To reduce their waste and use more recycled raw materials in their products

Consumers want the sustainable choice

We wanted to find out what today’s consumers expect from the manufacturing industry when it comes to sustainable products. So, we carried out a survey of 5,000 people in five different countries.

80% want manufacturers to use recycled materials in their products.

70% think it’s important that the products they buy can be recycled.

40% decided against buying products that didn’t meet their sustainability expectations.

Case

Castorama

Transforming packaging waste into a flourishing product

In Poland, the French retailer of DIY and garden supplies, Castorama, came up with a new way of using their waste plastic packaging together with Stena Recycling and Polish upcycling e-commerce platform Deko Eko. All waste plastic packaging was collected, sorted and then recycled into new raw materials, which were then used to make stylish Eco Logical flower pots for a more positive impact on gardens and the planet.
 
 
Blomsterlandet

Turning process waste into planting soil

Through an innovative collaboration together with Blomsterlandet and paper producer Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Stena Recycling has developed a climate-smart planting soil made from 100% recycled material. Peat, which is usually found in planting soil, is replaced by fiber mulch, which is a waste from the paper industry. The collaboration has created a more circular product, which is better for the planet and will make gardens bloom.
