Nestlé has pledged to make its entire global water portfolio carbon-neutral and repair associated sources of water it uses by 2025.
The company’s new sustainability strategy includes investment in high-quality offsets and carbon capture projects.
Nestlé Waters will also restore 100% of the water it uses and certify all of its water sites to a universal framework for the sustainable use of water, the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) standard.
To tackle plastic waste, the firm has pledged to halve its use of virgin plastic by using more recycled PET and alternative delivery systems.
Mark Schneider, Nestlé CEO, said: “This strategy offers the best opportunity for long-term profitable growth in the category while appealing to environmentally and health-conscious consumers.
“We are working tirelessly to ensure that consumers can enjoy our beverages in an environmentally responsible way.”
