At Nestlé we are committed to protecting the future of our planet. In collaboration with our partners and stakeholders, we are working towards our ambition to strive for zero environmental impact in our operations. We have set clear commitments and objectives to use sustainably managed and renewable resources, operate more efficiently, achieve zero waste for disposal, and improve water management. We also continue to participate in initiatives that reduce food loss and waste, and that preserve our forests and oceans.
Our 2030 ambition: Strive for zero environmental impact in our operations
Natural resources are becoming more constrained. Biodiversity is rapidly declining and forests are still disappearing. Water is increasingly scarce. Moreover, climate change will exacerbate all the challenges that we are currently facing. In addition, one-third of the food produced is either lost or wasted every year. As the world’s largest food and beverage company we are determined to play a leading role in tackling climate change and draw our global influence to effect positive change and grow sustainably.
A JOURNEY TOWARDS ACHIEVING ZERO NET GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS BY 2050
All our Nestlé Canada factories and businesses work hard everyday to reduce our environmental footprint. Numerous projects have been initiated and thanks to these improvement projects and targeted measures, we have already reduced our greenhouse gas and water usage by 22%. We are building on 10 years of work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and accelerating our actions to tackle climate change and committed to zero net emissions by 2050.
CARING FOR WATER
At Nestlé Waters Canada we are committed to water stewardship, minimizing the environmental impact associated with our operations, and responsible packaging.
Sustainability guides all that we do: we are the only spring water bottler in Canada that employs a full-time hydrogeologist who manages our spring sources; we have one of the most comprehensive datasets in the province; and all of our data is collected and reviewed by third parties.
