Nestle aiming for 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025
Nestle has announced it is aiming for all of its packaging to be either recyclable or reusable by 2025.
In announcing the goal, Nestle Chief Executive Officer, Mark Schneider, said plastic waste is one of the biggest sustainability issues facing the world today.
“Tackling it requires a collective approach,” Schneider said.
We are committed to finding improved solutions to reduce, re-use and recycle. Our ambition is to achieve 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025.”
Within Australia, Nestle has begun introducing the new Australasian Recycling Label to its products.
“The scheme, developed by Planet Ark, the Australian Packaging Covenant and PREP Design, recognises that most people want to recycle, but need clearer information,” said Nestle Oceania CEO, Sandra Martinez.
Nestle says its recycling and reusable packaging commitment consists of the following elements:
- “Playing an active role in the development of well-functioning collection, sorting and recycling schemes across the countries where we operate;
- Working with value chain partners and industry associations to explore different packaging solutions to reduce plastic usage, facilitate recycling and develop new approaches to eliminate plastic waste;
- Labelling our plastic product packaging with recycling information to help consumers dispose of it in the right way;
- Promoting a market for recycled plastics by continuing to increase the proportion of recycled plastics in our packaging.”
