NESTLÉ is dependent on biodiversity; we use a range of ingredients that originate from farms, forests and oceans. We are committed to safeguard natural capital including biodiversity.
We are working to:
-Assess biodiversity around our factories
-Develop Responsible Sourcing guidelines for commodities with a potential impact on biodiversity
-Work with farmers to assess and improve their agricultural practices
- Advocate for corporate and government action on the topic
NESTLÉ views the destruction of tropical rainforests and peatlands to cultivate crops such as palm oil as one of the most serious environmental issues. In 2010, we made a commitment to ensure that our products do not have a deforestation footprint.
