Nestlé has already made substantial progress, with 66% of its plastic packaging already being recyclable or reusable. The company continues to work towards its ambitious sustainability goals.

Aiming for 100% recyclable/reusable packaging by 2025

A few years back, Nestlé unveiled an ambitious plan to ensure that all its packaging becomes recyclable or reusable by the year 2025. The company envisions a future where none of its packaging, including plastic materials, ends up in landfills or littering the environment. Nestlé is firmly convinced of the urgent need to minimize the adverse environmental impact associated with packaging.

Back then, Nestlé CEO, Mark Schneider, emphasized the gravity of the plastic waste issue, stating: “Plastic waste represents one of the most significant sustainability challenges confronting the world today. Addressing this issue necessitates a collaborative effort. We are fully committed to discovering enhanced solutions for reducing, reusing and recycling. Our goal is to achieve 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025.”

Nestlé’s strategy centres on three fundamental pillars: the elimination of non-recyclable plastics, the promotion of plastics that facilitate higher recycling rates and the elimination or modification of intricate combinations of packaging materials.
