At Nestlé, tackling plastic pollution is an urgent priority for us. We are working hard to ensure that none of our product packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfill or as litter, including in our oceans, lakes and waterways.

At Nestlé, tackling plastic pollution is an urgent priority for us. We are working hard to ensure that none of our product packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfill or as litter, including in our  oceans, lakes and waterways.

We are accelerating our action to eliminate unnecessary plastics and ensuring that all our packaging is recyclable or reusable by 2025.

We always look for ways to reduce packaging and improve its environmental performance, while ensuring the freshness and quality of all our products at the same time.

Examples of packaging improvements include:

  • Since 2005, we have light-weighted our packaging by over 40% and are working on plans to increase our use of post-consumer recycled plastic in our products
  • Nestlé water bottles are 100% recyclable
  • Purina jugs, pails, lids and caps on Cat Litter products are all 100% recyclable
  • Nespresso launched its first recycling program in 1991 and all Nespresso capsules are fully recyclable
  • All Nestlé Health Science institutional products transitioned to tetra prismas and Ultrapak bags, which create less waste and reduce carbon footprint
