Our commitment _

At Nestlé, we made a promise to advance regenerative food systems at scale: to help protect, renew and restore the environment, improve farmers’ livelihoods and enhance the well-being of communities. Regenerative agriculture is our first step, but we are not stopping there.

What
we have
done
so far

Net Zero

As a signatory of the UN ‘Business Ambition for 1.5°C’ pledge, Nestlé is one of the first companies to share our detailed, time-bound plan, committing us to halve our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050.

Global actions focus on supporting farmers and suppliers to advance regenerative agriculture, planting 200 millions trees within the next ten years, completing our transition to 100 percent renewable electricity by 2025, addressing emissions in logistics and transport, as well as increasing the number of our ‘carbon neutral’ brands and developing more plant-based foods.

Regenerative
Agriculture

We have embarked on a journey towards regeneration. We’re doing that by accelerating the transition to a regenerative ‘food system’ – a term that encompasses every actor, activity, process, and product in growing, raising, making, delivering and consuming food.

Rethinking
Manufacturing

Between 2010-2020, we achieved 37% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions per tonne of product manufactured globally. A 60% reduction was achieved across the Middle East and North Africa’s 25 food, beverage, and water manufacturing sites during the same period, overachieving our set commitment of 35%. Zero waste for disposal was also achieved at our food manufacturing sites and distribution centers in the region.

so far

Logistics

We, at Nestlé, are switching our global fleet of vehicles to lower emission options and will reduce and offset business travel by 2022.

Transforming
Products

Within our product portfolio, we, at Nestlé, are continuously expanding our offering of plant-based food and beverages and reformulating products to lower environmental impact. We are increasing the number of ‘carbon neutral’ brands we offer to give consumers the opportunity to contribute to the fight against climate change.

Forest
positive

Nestlé is committed to ensuring our operations are 100% deforestation-free by 2022 for palm oil, sugar, soy, meat, pulp and paper, and by 2025 for coffee and cocoa. In fact, 90% of our key ingredients — palm oil, sugar, soy, meat, as well as pulp and paper — have already been assessed as deforestation-free as of December 2020.
