Nestlé targets 100% recyclable/re-usable packaging to minimize its impact on the environment  

Nestlé said it would ensure its packaging will be recyclable or re-usable by 2025, as it targets zero packaging waste.

 

CEO Mark Schneider said, "Plastic waste is one of the biggest sustainability issues the world is facing today. Tackling it requires a collective approach. We are committed to finding improved solutions to reduce, re-use and recycle. Our ambition is to achieve 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025."

 

The company focuses on three core areas: eliminate non-recyclable plastics; encourage the use of plastics that allow better recycling rates; and eliminate or change complex combinations of packaging materials.

Recognizing the need for developing a circular economy, Nestlé is committed to:

  • Playing an active role in the development of well-functioning collection, sorting and recycling schemes across the countries where we operate;
  • Working with value chain partners and industry associations to explore different packaging solutions to reduce plastic usage, facilitate recycling and develop new approaches to eliminate plastic waste;
  • Labeling our plastic product packaging with recycling information to help consumers dispose of it in the right way;
  • Promoting a market for recycled plastics by continuing to increase the proportion of recycled plastics in our packaging
  • Preventing packaging material ending up as waste, including in seas, oceans and waterways is one of the key reasons behind Nestlé’s pledge.
