Safeguarding the environment

). This unsustainable demand for raw materials, coupled with climate change, is encroaching on natural habitats and contributing to the ongoing decline in species populations. The extinction rate we see today is estimated by the to be between 1000 and 10 000 times higher than would occur naturally if humans weren’t around.

The amount of waste we create is also rising alarmingly. The quantity of solid waste generated each year – much of which finds its way into water bodies and oceans – is expected to reach 2.59 billion tonnes by 2030 () and to continue climbing throughout the century. In lower-income countries, 93% of this waste is discarded through open dumping. Even a third of the food we produce is wasted or lost (). With spiraling consumption, mismanagement of solid waste and inefficient production processes impacting the world around us, we need to transform how we use and reuse the world’s natural resources.

Our contribution

Forests

We have partnered with Airbus and , a satellite-based service, to monitor 100% of our global palm oil supply chains from 2019. The program will be extended to cover pulp and paper and soya supply chains at a later stage.

Soils

To protect the health of soil, we are working with farmers in the US to reduce fertilizer run-off. And increasing the sourcing of organic ingredients, which leads to improved soil health.

Oceans

Oceans are important for Nestlé, both for the seafood we source from them and their key role in addressing climate change. Unsustainable fishing, plastics and agricultural run-off are all placing stresses on oceans. Through responsibly sourcing seafood, investing in waste infrastructure to stop plastic leakage, supporting the , working with farmers to manage soils so that there is no excess run-off, and our new ambition to have 100% reusable or recyclable packaging by 2025, we are acting to reduce the stresses upon the ocean.

Going beyond

Beyond our operations, we work with other stakeholders to raise awareness, identify risks and agree actions, from regulatory intervention to participation in hands-on activities. Through partnerships and multi-stakeholder initiatives, we have helped develop guidelines to reduce food waste and we’re working on a project to introduce simple, standardized food date labels by 2020.

Our work on safeguarding the environment contributes to SDGs 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17.


Our material issues are those that have the most impact on the economy, society and the environment. See how we map our material issues to the UN SDGs (pdf, 537Kb)

We’re taking action to protect our forests, our oceans and our soil.
