Goal: Thank Nestle for aiming to meet environmental and sustainable targets by 2020
Nestle, the world’s biggest food company, has set a variety of environmentally conscious goals that the company aims to meet by 2020. The $88 billion multinational corporation has promised to increase its commitment to nutrition, water, and rural development. Nestle’s goals build upon the company’s recent work. In 2012, Nestle invested almost $30 million in water conservation projects around the world. Nestle should be recognized for its continued promise to provide an environmentally sustainable future.
A total of 30 goals were implemented, including better labeling of products, with details about the guideline daily amount on all products by 2016. Mislabeled food products have been a growing concern, as consumers are shifting toward healthier diets and lifestyles. Nestle’s labeling goal will ensure that consumers will know exactly what they are eating. Nestle has also pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent of baseline levels in 2005. This move will help to offset global warming. Other environmentally conscious targets that Nestle has implemented are the goals of only using 100 percent sustainable and certified responsibly sourced palm oil, planning to cut water consumption per ton of product by 40 percent, and promising $528 million to encourage responsible agriculture, production, and consumption.
Nestle is taking great strides in providing notable changes for a more sustainable future. The promised goals are good for consumers, global nutrition efforts, and environmental conservation work. Sign the petition below to commend Nestle for implementing consumer-conscious and eco-conscious goals that will hopefully set a standard for other large corporations.
I was pleased to hear that your company has set a multitude of environmentally conscious goals for 2020. Nestle is the world’s biggest food company, and your promise to the environment and to your consumers will make a positive impact. It is encouraging to learn that a $88 billion multinational corporation such as yours has pledged to increase its commitment to nutrition and environmental conservation.
As you may know, 30 goals were implemented, ranging from product labeling to greenhouse gas emission reduction. As consumers are shifting toward healthier lifestyles and eating habits, it is important for them to know what they are consuming. In this regard, mislabeled food products have become a major concern. Therefore, it is refreshing to hear that Nestle plans on accurately labeling products with details about the guideline daily amount. Nestle has also pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent, in efforts to combat global climate change. Your company’s pledge to only use 100 percent sustainable palm oil is promising, as the palm oil industry faces much controversy for its deforestation consequences.
I would like to personally commend your company for setting goals that are beneficial for consumers, global nutrition efforts, and the environment. Hopefully, other large corporations will follow your example and make eco-friendly changes as well. Thank you for working toward a more sustainable future.
