Nestlé Endorses Caring For Climate

Nestlé Endorses Caring For Climate

Nestlé has announced its endorsement of Caring for Climate, the world’s largest coalition on climate issues, as part of the company’s long standing efforts to further provide climate change leadership.

José Lopez, Nestlé Executive Vice President and Head of Operations, says: “The Caring for Climate initiative is fully aligned with our own explicit commitments, which reflect our respect for society in which we operate, respect for the environment, respect for the future generations. Climate change must be addressed through mutually beneficial collaboration and multi-stakeholder channels to be effective ultimately.”

Caring for Climate is led by the UN Global Compact, the UN Environment Programme and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Nestlé partners with a variety of UN agencies, academia and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), including the UN Global Compact and Rainforest Alliance, to address the range of complex climate, environmental and social issues that Nestlé and the world faces.

Caring for Climate commitments include continuously improving the efficiency of energy use and reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of products, services and processes.

As the world’s biggest food and beverage company, Nestlé is directly impacted by the effects of climate change and that is why the company has for several years taken meaningful GHG emissions reduction and climate change adaptation actions, like using renewable energy and improving energy efficiency in its operations.

Through such actions and the company’s work with suppliers, farmers and consumers to encourage resource efficiency, responsible product sourcing and environmental stewardship, Nestlé has been recognised over the years as an industry leader by a variety of organisations and NGOs, such as Oxfam and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
