Thanks to the passion, effort and commitment of our employees, Nestlé Cares – our first ever Nestlé Canada Volunteer Week was an overwhelming success! It’s truly amazing what we can accomplish when we come together.
Throughout the week of June 11 to June 15, over 1,000 employees from across Canada gave back to their communities, their neighbourhoods and the planet, and volunteered for over 3,000 hours.
We’re proud to share a few of the inspiring examples of what our employees accomplished together – by the numbers!
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. To grow sustainably, we must use the planet’s resources wisely and draw on our global influence to effect positive change. Our 2030 ambition is to strive for zero environmental impact in our operations.
Globally, Nestlé has committed to achieve zero waste for disposal in all of its sites worldwide by 2020. In line with the company’s global ambition, Nestlé in Canada currently sends zero waste for disposal among its five factories across Ontario. Factories include: food factory in Mississauga, confectionery factory in Toronto, ice cream factory in London, food service factory in Trenton and the Nestlé Waters plant in Aberfoyle. Each factory works to establish innovative and local solutions to address each one of its unique environments.
