Nestlé to plant three million trees in Amazon to mitigate environmental impact

Beginning in March 2020, the retail giant will start planting trees in Brazil and Mexico to drive towards net zero

Nestlé has pledged to plant three million trees in the Amazon to absorb more carbon dioxide and help offset its emissions.

Beginning in March 2020, the retail giant will start planting trees in Brazil and Mexico, focusing on specific planting locations where palm, soya, paper, coffer or coconut are grown and where precious ecosystems such as forests, wetlands, peatlands or mangroves can be restored.

It forms the initial phase of a broader reforestation initiative as part of a plan to scale up actions in agriculture and deploy nature-based solutions to absorb more carbon from the atmosphere.
