Nestlé pledges to make all packaging recycling or reusable by 2025

Written by: Jo Gallacher | Published:

Nestlé has announced it will aim to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

The food and drink company, based in Switzerland, said there was an “urgent need” to minimize the impact of packaging on the environment.

It will focus on three core areas: eliminating non-recyclable plastics, encouraging the use of plastic that allow better recycling rates and eliminating or changing complex combinations of packaging materials.

Nestlé plans to do this by playing an active role in developing collection and recycling schemes, working with partners to explore different packaging solutions, marking packaging with clearly labelled recycling information and promoting a market for recycled plastics.

Mark Schneider, Nestlé CEO, said, “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, reuse and recycle. Our ambition is to achieve 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025.”
