Environmental Performance Indicators cover all Nestle factories excepted non consumer Nestle Water Business factories.

Non consumer Nestle Waters Business factories resulted in an additional 6.8 million tonnes of production volume and 8.3 million m3 of water withdrawal.

(a) 2011 and 2012 data are restated in accordance with a revised definition of these fuel categories. The total energy consumption is not affected.
(b) 2007 to 2012 data are restated using the latest Ozone Depleting Potentials from recognised external sources.
(c) Factories, R&D locations and distribution centers. As per our internal policy, 100% of Nestlé factories active in the group for more than three years are ISO 14001:2004 certified (420 factories).

* Nestle specific indicators that are not required by GRI.
