Creating shared value
By taking action to tackle climate change, we are helping protect the livelihoods of the farmers who supply us. We are also contributing to safeguarding a healthy environment for people and planet alike, today and in the future.
For our business
By working to reduce our climate impact and encouraging those in our value chain to do the same, we are shielding our business against the impacts of climate change.
Why it matters
Once an abstract concept for many, the impacts of climate change are now impossible to ignore. From the farmers who supply us to the consumers who enjoy our products, everyone is affected by climate change.
To address the issue, we must work together, and we need to accelerate our efforts right away. As a global organization, Nestlé is stepping up to spur collective action and long-term engagement in climate policy.
Acting on climate change
Demonstrating our commitment
Before we use our voice to galvanize industry action, we must ensure we are setting the best example ourselves. We are determined to reduce our environmental footprint. We have significantly surpassed our emissions targets by harnessing renewable electricity sources and innovating how we do business.
Building on our successes, 2020 was a year of preparation for Nestlé. We developed new, ambitious goals for the future, and in December we announced a time-bound, targeted plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. We are also encouraging collective action and have joined other companies in calling for governments to pursue a more sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nestlé is present at COP26 in Glasgow (October 31 - November 12, 2021) to advocate, communicate, and hear others' expectations of us when it comes to our part in addressing climate impacts across the globe. Find out more
