Nestlé's Commitment to Sustainability

At Nestlé USA, we recognize our need and responsibility to actively address environmental concerns. Our ultimate environmental goal is to ensure that our company is doing its part responsibly and playing a leadership role in helping to preserve the environment. It is our policy to utilize sound environmental, pollution prevention and control, energy conservation and recycling/solid waste management practices internally, and to develop and utilize packaging that reduces the amount of materials used, contains already recycled materials, and/or can be recycled or disposed of in environmentally sensitive ways. Our approach is practical, cost-effective and results-based.
