Nestlé views the destruction of tropical rainforests and peatlands to cultivate crops such as palm oil as one of the most serious environmental issues facing us today. It is estimated that rainforest destruction contributes to around 20% of greenhouse gas emissions and the growing use of biofuels is a significant factor.
In 2010, we made a commitment to ensure that our products do not have a deforestation impact and announced a partnership with The Forest Trust (TFT) to eliminate deforestation from our supply chain. This covers a broad group of commodities. In 2013, in partnership with the non-governmental organisation Conservation International, we have developed guides to track and illustrate areas at greatest risk of deforestation.
