A shared vision
Nestlé has been an official partner to the Solar Impulse Foundation since 2017. This builds on Nestlé's support for B. Piccard during his round the world Solar Impulse mission in 2015/6. The partnership is currently focused on finding clean and profitable solutions for sustainable product packaging, new materials, and reducing the use of virgin plastics.
Tackling climate change can't wait and neither can we. It is imperative to the long-term success of our business. We will work together with farmers, industry partners, governments, non-governmental organizations and our consumers to reduce our environmental footprint.Mark Schneider, CEO of Nestlé
Building on a decade of action, Nestlé will halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 – even as the company grows.
Nestlé is playing a leading role by tackling emissions across its business and supply chain. By supporting farmers and suppliers to advance regenerative agriculture, planting 20 million trees every year for the next 10 years and completing its transition to 100% renewable electricity by 2025. Additionally, Nestlé is increasing its number of 'carbon neutral' brands. More information about Nestlé's Net Zero Roadmap
