A sustainable approach

We are transforming our business and using our resources to tackle climate change and inspire change.


At Nestlé, our aim is to grow our business while reducing our impact on the environment. We are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, using resources efficiently, and encouraging biodiversity in the areas where we operate. 

Through our Net Zero Roadmap, we set clear targets for environmental sustainability and publish regular updates on our progress, so you know we’re keeping our promises.

We work closely with farmers and communities to ensure we don’t just deliver the best tasting coffee – but that it is made with care and respect. Nestlé has made the commitment for 100% of its coffee to be produced sustainably by 2025.  This means that the coffee can be traced back to an identified farmer group and verified or certified by independent organizations.  


We aim to reduce carbon emissions where we source coffee and throughout our operations. Our aim is that 100% of our packaging will be recyclable or reusable and we are working hard to achieve this.

Making products more sustainably by switching to renewable electricity, using more renewable fuels and investing in energy efficiency, is also an area of focus. We are making a difference by sourcing 100% renewable electricity and using coffee grounds left over from the brewing process to help power our NESCAFÉ factory in Gympie, Queensland.

Of course, sustainability is a long-term commitment. Which is why we have pledged to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and why we’re always looking for new ways to reduce waste and minimise energy consumption even further.
