Nestlé has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 34% since 2010.
That’s according to the firm’s annual sustainability report, which highlights its climate change efforts to transition to a low carbon economy.
The report claims during 2019, Nestle also reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 34% and cut direct water withdrawal by 31% per tonne of product since 2010, while 328 factories achieved zero waste for disposal and 41% of the company’s electricity came from renewable sources.
The business said: “We are taking leadership in reducing the environmental impact of our products and have committed to make 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. In 2019, we launched our Institute of Packaging Sciences, dedicated to the discovery and development of functional, safe and environmentally-friendly packaging solutions.
“We have started to eliminate plastic straws from our products, rolled out paper packaging for products such as Nesquik and the Yes! snack bar and increased the use of recycled plastic in our water brand.”
