Nestlé has strengthened its commitment and leadership in tackling the issue of plastic waste by joining the New Plastics Economy as a core partner.
Applying the principles of the circular economy, the initiative - led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation - brings together key stakeholders to rethink and redesign the future of plastics, starting with packaging.
Véronique Cremades-Mathis, Global Head of Sustainable Packaging at Nestlé, said: "Collaboration and collective action are critical to achieving system-wide change to the way we think about and engage with plastics. At Nestlé, we don't want any of our packaging, including plastics, to become waste or pollution. The New Plastics Economy initiative represents an important catalyst on the journey to achieving a circular economy for plastics, and we are pleased to be able to contribute to this work through our expanded role as a core partner."
Nestlé is also a signatory of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, which unites more than 400 organizations behind a common vision and targets to address plastic waste and pollution at its source.
