Reducing emissions and cutting waste

Apr 22, 2016


The signing of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, committing countries to work to combat global warming, coincides this year with Earth Day.

Nestlé is proud to support both efforts through our Nestlé in Society commitments. We’re working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, cut waste and increase the use of renewable energy across our business.

So far we’ve reduced our energy consumption per ton of product by 29% over the last 10 years.

Our agronomists have delivered over 90 million free or subsidized coffee and cocoa plants to farmers through our Nescafé Plan and our Nestlé Cocoa Plan, helping reach the UN’s Earth Day goal of planting over 7 billion trees in the next 5 years.
