Apr. 10, 2018 - Nestlé today announced its goal of making 100 per cent of its packaging recyclable or re-usable by 2025, saying its vision is that none of its packaging – including plastics – ends up in landfill or as litter.

The company intends to focus on three areas: eliminate non-recyclable plastics; encourage the use of plastics that allow better recycling rates; and eliminate or change complex combinations of packaging materials.

“Plastic waste is one of the biggest sustainability issues the world is facing today. Tackling it requires a collective approach. We are committed to finding improved solutions to reduce, re-use and recycle. Our ambition is to achieve 100 per cent recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025,” Nestlé CEO Mark Schneider said.

The company is committing to:

• Playing an active role in the development of well-functioning collection, sorting and recycling schemes across the countries where it operates;
• Working with value chain partners and industry associations to explore different packaging solutions to reduce plastic usage, facilitate recycling and develop new approaches to eliminate plastic waste;
• Labelling plastic product packaging with recycling information to help consumers dispose of it in the right way; and
• Promoting a market for recycled plastics by continuing to increase the proportion of recycled plastics in its packaging.
