A ‘zero water’ factory in Mexico, a UK confectionery factory that turns waste into renewable energy are just two examples of the kind of work that has helped Nestlé achieve an industry leading score of 99 out of 100 in the ‘Environmental Dimension’ of the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). The DJSI is a globally recognised independent benchmark that measures company performance across three dimensions: Economic, Environmental and Social.

With an overall score of 89 out of 100 in the DJSI ranking, Nestlé was among the top performing food product companies. In the Index’s ‘Environmental Dimension’, its score of 99 is the highest in the industry, which underlines its commitment to water stewardship and environmental sustainability.

For instance, Nestlé is committed to achieving water efficiency and sustainability across its operations, and one example is the introduction of ‘zero water’ technology at its dairy factory in Jalisco, Mexico, which allows the plant to operate without using any local groundwater.

The UK provides another example of new, more sustainable production processes: an anaerobic digestion system at Nestlé’s Fawdon confectionery factory turns confectionery waste into renewable energy and clean water.

Nestlé’s status as the leading Nutrition, Health & Wellness company was recognised with a top score of 100 for Health & Nutrition in the Index, a testament to work done in areas including product innovation and renovation.
