Environmental Sustainability

In a world facing rapid environmental change and rising populations, we all have a stake in protecting our environment.

At Nestlé, our aim is to grow our business while reducing our impacts on the environment. We are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, using resources efficiently, and encouraging biodiversity in the areas where we operate.


All living things need a stable, healthy environment in order to thrive.


By protecting the environment, we help make sure it can continue to sustainably provide us with natural resources and raw ingredients needed to make our products.
