Nestlé recognized as a global leader in climate change

Nestlé has been recognized as a global leader for its response to climate change, again earning a place in the annual CDP Climate A List.

Nestlé is among just 5% of participating companies to be featured on the 2017 Climate A List, compiled by global non-for-profit charity CDP. This is in recognition of action taken in the last year to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy.

Climate change leadership is part of Nestlé’s purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future, the company says.

Over the last 10 years there has been real progress, according to Nestlé. The company has reduced direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per tonne of product by 39%, while increasing production by 46%. It says it is on track to achieve its science-based 2020 objective to reduce GHG emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) per tonne of product by 35% in its manufacturing operations versus 2010.

The Climate A List and full company score is released in CDP's Tracking progress on corporate climate action.
