Nestle Reduces Waste By 44 Percent

Nestlé has reduced 44 percent of its waste per ton of product since 2010 in the U.S., and five factory locations reached zero waste to landfill status by the end of 2013, according to the company’s new sustainability update, reported Sustainable Brands.

The “Creating Shared Value” report is the company’s first expanded effort to highlight U.S.-specific milestones and achievements tied to Nestlé’s global sustainability principles and commitments, according to Sustainable Brands. The report documents the food giant’s nutritional, social and environmental progress from the past year, as well as provides updates on the company’s US progress toward its global commitments.

Other notable environmental impact updates include saving more than 3.3 billion pounds of plastic since 2003 by reducing the plastic content of its PET half-liter water bottles by 60 percent. Nestlé is already on its way to achieving zero waste in Europe by 2020.
