With over 2 000 brands, our product portfolio plays a key role in helping Nestlé become a net zero company by 2050.
Our brand teams are working to adapt our product portfolio as part of our Net Zero Roadmap, to reduce their environmental impact and help meet consumer demand for sustainable products.
Evolving our product portfolio to support net zero
One way that we seek to reduce the environmental impact of our portfolio is by developing more plant-based products.
Launching plant-based brands
Good for you, good for the planet. With a strong range of plant-based meat alternatives like burgers, sausages, tuna and filet pieces as well as veggie-centric bakes, falafel and more, Garden Gourmet helps people reduce the amount of animal protein in meals.
Adding plant-based to our existing brands
We believe that accelerating the switch to plant-based foods will help us to achieve net zero by 2050. That's why, as well as great new brands, we're introducing plant-based versions of some of our most-loved names like KitKat, Milo and Nescafé.
Brands embracing regenerative agriculture
Garden Gourmet is also working hard to build agricultural supply chains based on regenerative practices, along with Nestlé Health Science brands, Persona and Garden of Life.
Our carbon neutral brands
In addition to making long-term carbon reductions and removals in our company's value chain, in the short-to-medium term some of our brands are investing in carbon credits to compensate for emissions relating to their products.
To help our brands achieve carbon neutrality we purchase high-quality carbon credits that help fund natural climate solutions and other activities outside our value chain, including tree planting, forest protection and, in some cases, social programs for rural communities.
All our carbon neutral brands continue to make GHG emissions reductions to support our Net Zero Roadmap.
Every cup of Nespresso coffee to be carbon neutral
Our coffee brand Nespresso has been carbon neutral across its business operations since 2017. Nespresso is working toward its commitment that every cup of Nespresso coffee, both for at-home and for professional customers, will be carbon neutral by 2022. This means achieving carbon neutrality across its supply chain and product life cycle.
This new ambition builds on more than 10 years of work during which Nespresso reduced its carbon emissions and compensated the remainder through agroforestry.
