Our commitment: Promote transparency and proactive long-term engagement in climate policy
We believe Nestlé is well placed to demonstrate climate change leadership. Our aim is to ensure the continuity of our own business and supply chain while protecting the planet. We will therefore continue to work with our stakeholders to find solutions to the environmental challenges that climate change exacerbates.
Our objective in 2016
By 2016: Provide climate change information in our Annual Report package using the Climate Change Reporting Framework developed by the Climate Disclosure Standards Board.
Our progress to date
Climate change is a global challenge, and demands a united response. Nestlé leads and actively participates in several initiatives, which we believe to be aligned with our explicit commitments. These initiatives reflect our respect for society, the environment and future generations.
We achieved our target by providing climate change information in our Annual Report package using the Climate Change Reporting Framework.
In 2016, we joined the Feed the Future initiative for Climate Smart Cocoa, which aims to support smallholder cocoa producers in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire adopt agricultural practices to offset the challenges of climate change.
Our efforts continue to be aligned with the CDP’s six climate action initiatives, which are focused on science-based GHG reduction targets, renewable electricity, deforestation, reporting on climate change, engagement on climate change policy and carbon pricing.
After careful consideration, we have extended our objective to implement the Guide for Responsible Corporate Engagement in Climate Policy to 2020.
Our objective towards 2020
By 2020: Implement the Guide for Responsible Corporate Engagement in Climate Policy developed by the CDP, the UN Global Compact (UNGC), Ceres, The Climate Group, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the World Resources Institute (WRI).
