Investing in renewable energy for a low-carbon future
As a business, we are committed to working towards a low-carbon future. As part of this we have been, and continue to work on, reducing our CO2 emissions across our business operations, year-on-year, and we report on this performance as part of our disclosure in CDP.
We are reducing our CO2 emissions in a number ways, one of which is through investing heavily in renewable energy technologies, such as solar and wind power.
As a signatory to RE100, Nestlé has committed to using 100% renewable energy across all our operations. In the UK, we have made a separate commitment to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2020.
To help us achieve these goals and make the transition to becoming a low-carbon business, Nestlé UK & Ireland made several major investments in renewable energy technologies in 2015, focusing on our Fawdon factory as a test site.
