Nestlé has long been committed to recycling and ascertains that all products it places on the market are recyclable.
The very popular Nestlé Collect scheme is an initiative whereby Nestlé and GreenPak collaborate to recycle all the clean and empty packaging that is brought in, in exchange for points, by our loyal consumers. All the material is separated and collected for recycling by GreenPak.
Since 2009, GreenPak has bestowed the “Committed to Recycle” seal on Nestlé Malta for working towards a better environment and for ensuring that packaging material placed on the market through Nestle’s trading activity are recycled properly.
Internationally, Nestlé is also very committed to environmentaly sustainable business practices. As a company, we know that our planet’s natural resources are rapidly depleting as human consumption rises. Natural habitats are declining because of growing populations and the increased demand for raw materials from agriculture, fishing and other activities. We now consume 1.6 times what our planet provides every year – and that needs to be reversed.
Nestlé have supported the Product Environmental Footprint project, helping the European Commission develop category rules for Nestlé Waters Vittel packed water and Purina ONE pet food.
Nestlé led the development of the Food Loss & Waste Protocol, on behalf of the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), and piloted its Food Loss and Waste Accounting and Reporting Standard in our dairy supply chain in Pakistan.
Through the NaturALL Bottle Alliance, Nestlé Waters is working with Danone and Origin Materials, a US start-up, to develop a PET plastic bottle made from 100% renewable materials.
