beach clean-up 

With plastic waste continuing to accumulate in landfills and in our oceans, endangering wildlife, tackling plastic pollution has never been so pressing. It is an urgent priority for us and a responsibility we take seriously.

We are accelerating our actions when it comes to tackling the plastic waste problem and are committed to making a significant difference everywhere we operate.

We are making progress but there is much more to come. We want to be a leader in this space.

Our vision and commitment

Our vision is that none of our packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfill or as litter. Our vision is not just some lofty ideal – we are working hard to deliver on it and help to achieve a waste-free future.

We announced last year our commitment to making 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. In January 2019, we set out our broader vision for a waste-free future and announced a series of specific actions to meet our commitment.

While we are committed to pursuing recycling options where feasible, we know that 100% recyclability is not enough to successfully tackle the plastics waste problem. We need to push the boundaries and do more. We are determined to look at every option to solve this complex challenge and embrace multiple solutions that can have an impact now. For example, we believe in the value of recyclable and compostable paper-based materials and biodegradable polymers, in places where recycling infrastructure does not exist.

As we deploy new solutions, we will never compromise the health of our consumers. The safety and quality of our foods and beverages are non-negotiable.

Our actions

Addressing the complex problem of plastic pollution requires taking an inclusive and joined-up approach. To realize this objective, specific actions are required. In line with this approach, we are taking tangible steps in:

1. Pioneering alternative materials

  • We have created the Nestlé Institute for Packaging Sciences to develop sustainable packaging materials and collaborate with industry partners to scale-up research and innovation. Through the Institute, we are currently exploring a range of innovations, including new paper-based materials as well as biodegradable/compostable polymers that are also recyclable.
  • We have rolled out paper-based packaging globally for NESQUIK in the first quarter of 2019, and will be for the YES! snackbar in the second half of 2019. SMARTIES will also start rolling out plastic free, paper-based packaging in 2019, and MILO will introduce paper-based pouches in 2020.
  • We are phasing out all plastics that are non-recyclable or hard to recycle for all our products worldwide by 2025 (pdf, 50Kb).
  • As part of this commitment, starting in February 2019, we began eliminating all plastic straws from our products.
  • Nestlé Waters is working to increase the recycled PET content in its bottles to 35% globally by 2025. It will reach 50% in the United States by 2025, with specific focus on POLAND SPRING, and 50% in its European brands ACQUA PANNA, BUXTON, HENNIEZ and LEVISSIMA by 2025.
  • We have launched a global partnership with Danimer Scientific to develop a marine biodegradable and recyclable bottle for our water business.
  • Recognizing the challenges in getting food-grade quality recycled materials, we have started a collaboration with PureCycle Technologies to produce food-grade recycled polypropylene.
  • We have joined NaturALL Bottle Alliance, which aims to develop 100% bio-based PET to be used for our water business.

2. Shaping a waste-free future

  • We’re partnering with Project STOP, a frontline initiative aimed at addressing the leakage of plastic into the ocean, through partnerships with cities and governments in Southeast Asia. Our first Project STOP pilot is in Indonesia.
  • We are founding signatory of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, an initiative led jointly by The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and UN Environment, to promote and encourage progress in tackling the plastic waste problem.
  • We are determined to reduce our use of single-use plastics. We are introducing reusable packaging, new delivery systems and innovative business models.
    • We’re working with the Loop organization to develop reusable packaging. We are currently testing reusable ice cream containers for our HÄAGEN-DAZS brand in the U.S.
    • Dispensers for NESCAFÉ and MILO are already available in many countries around the world.
    • In early 2020, we will launch new water dispensers using state-of-the-art technology, allowing consumers to fill their own reusable bottles.

  • We’re partnering with Veolia to work on waste collection, sorting and recycling of plastic material, with a particular emphasis on flexible plastic packaging. The partnership will also explore technologies to establish viable models of recycling in different countries. This includes chemical recycling technologies, which will help Nestlé to increase the recycled content of its bottled water packaging to 35% and its overall product packaging to 15% by 2025.
  • Together with other companies, we’ve just launched the Africa Plastics Recycling Alliance to develop the recycling infrastructure across Sub-Saharan Africa – and creating jobs in the process.

3. Driving new behavior

  • All 4,200 Nestlé facilities worldwide are eliminating single-use plastic items that cannot be recycled.
  • Our employees worldwide are dedicating their volunteering days to the removal of litter and will be participating in clean-up activities on World Oceans Day (8 June). For more information on how you can get involved, check out the World Oceans Day website.

Helping 50 million children lead healthier lives by 2030

Nestlé for Healthier Kids

Nutrition is key to ensure a healthy child’s development. But as always, theory is one thing, practice is another. Encouraging kids to eat more veggies and fruits, ensuring their meals are as nutritious as possible and that their protein sources are diversified can be a tough challenge for parents and caregivers.

We are conscious of the urgency to act and help addressing the challenges of children obesity and undernutrition.

With Nestlé for Healthier Kids, we federate all our efforts to support parents and caregivers on their journey to raise healthier kids. From leading research to product development, from education to innovative nutrition and lifestyle services, our ambition is to help 50 million children lead healthier lives by 2030.

The two focus areas of the program:

1. Accelerating the transformation of our product portfolio

To ensure our brands support healthier lifestyles, we have already:

  • Removed over 40,000 tonnes of sugar and 6,200 tonnes of saturated fat from our products globally since 2014;
  • Removed over 15,000 tonnes of salt from our products globally since 2012;
  • Increased the number of micro-nutrient fortified food to 174 billion globally in 2017. In Indonesia alone, four billion portions of our products have been fortified with iron;
  • 99.8% of our global portfolio is free of trans-fatty acids (TFA)

We have also made forward-looking commitments by 2020:

  • Add 750 million portions (80 g) of vegetables to our products globally;
  • Add at least 300 million portions (16 g) of fiber-rich grains, pulses, nuts and seeds to products to our products globally. 1.8 million bowls of Nestlé Breakfast Cereals with whole grain have been consumed by children in Indonesia;
  • Further reduce sugars by 5% from our products globally. In Indonesia, we are committed to reducing 3,000 tonnes of sugar from our products by 2020;
  • Further reduce salt by 10% from our products globally;
  • Complete our commitment made in 2014, to reduce saturated fats by 10% in all relevant products that do not meet WHO recommendations


Here are some examples of our efforts in transforming our product portfolio in Indonesia:

Micronutrient fortification


Nestlé is committed to helping address the issue of malnutrition through fortification of our products with various micronutrients that are deficient among Indonesian families, especially iron, iodine, vitamin A and zinc.

By fortifying popular foods and beverages such as DANCOW and CERELAC, we can reach millions of children in Indonesia, helping them get the nutrients they need to promote optimal growth and development.

Sugar reduction


In 2018, Nestlé launched an improved MILO recipe with 25% less sugar, as part of the company’s commitment to providing healthier and tastier choices.

Not only lower in sugar content, the new recipe is also enriched with more malt and increased vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B3, B6, B12, C, D, calcium, phosphorus and iron.




Nestlé makes wholegrain as the main ingredient in the entire Nestlé Breakfast Cereals portfolio. Wholegrain contains all three components of the grain kernel: brand, endosperm and germ.

With its great taste, wholegrain helps provide fibre, vitamins, minerals, as well as other nutrients for our body.

2. Inspiring with supportive programs and services

Parents and caregivers need help to raise kids with healthier eating and lifestyle habits. We develop programs and online services to provide them with nutritional knowledge, healthy recipes and practical tips.

In 2018, various programs under the Nestlé for Healthier Kids initiative reached 29 million children in 86 countries around the world.

Here are some examples:

Nestlé Awal Sehat Tumbuh Sehat

Nestlé Awal Sehat Tumbuh Sehat

Adopting good nutrition practices from an early age is essential to becoming a healthy adult. Nestlé Awal Sehat Tumbuh Sehat offers personalized nutrition services to parents in the first 1,000 days of life — from pregnancy to baby’s 2nd birthday.

The program — designed to empower parents to give their children a life-long health advantage — is available in over 50 countries and almost 10 million parents are currently registered. Our services, mainly online, include an engaging e-learning course that turns the latest scientific findings into simple, practical feeding advice.

MILO sports camps

MILO sports camps

When kids grow with sports, they not only live a healthier and more active lifestyle, they learn skills and values that help them succeed in life.

Well-established MILO grassroots sports programs across the world are helping more than 20 million kids find the sport that the love, and also learn important values like teamwork and leadership. In Indonesia alone, 200 thousand children have participated in various MILO sports activities.

Nestlé Healthy Kids program

Nestlé Healthy Kids school programs

In collaboration with over 300 partners worldwide, our school-dedicated module empowers teachers, parents and children with nutrition education and promotes healthy lifestyles in the school environment in more than 80 countries, including Indonesia.

Through Nestlé Healthy Kids, we provide an educational program on nutrition and healthy diet, regular physical activities, environmental awareness and personal hygiene.

At Nestlé, we drive diversity & inclusion through our impact on:


by building an inclusive culture, leveraging on the differences of our employees when working together


by acting and engaging in an inclusive way with society and stakeholders in our diverse business environments across the entire value chain


by thinking about the needs of diverse consumers and customers in our products & services and being inclusive in their accessibility – whenever, wherever, however

So what is Diversity and Inclusion at Nestlé?

Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our company’s culture and is one of the ways we bring our purpose and values to life.

Our values are rooted in respect: respect for ourselves, for each other, respect for diversity and respect for the future. We aim to embed diversity and inclusion across everything we do, focused on three core areas: culture, innovation and society. This involves building an inclusive culture that values the different talents and experiences of our employees, innovating to serve the needs of our diverse consumers and customers and engaging with society in the diverse markets where we operate.

We recruit competent and motivated people who respect our values, provide equal opportunities for their development and advancement and protect their privacy. We do not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination. Our commitment to provide equal opportunities starts from the point of recruitment until the end of the working relationship.

Gender Balance

Gender Balance has been a priority for us since 2008, and it helped us to increase the number of women at all levels in the organisation. We want to be a gender balanced company by creating the enabling conditions in our work environment to achieve annual increases in the percentage of women managers and senior leaders. Our global and local initiatives on gender diversity include:

  • Development opportunities: mentoring and coaching programs
  • A flexible and supportive work environment
  • Role model events, round tables and network discussions
  • Leadership development training and unconscious bias workshops
  • Maternity Protection Policy (pdf, 1Mb)


of managerial roles are held by women worldwide


We have embedded gender balance in all its Human Resources practices. We have made progress in recent years increasing the number of women in managerial positions. As of 2018, 43% of these roles are held by women.We will now put a particular emphasis on increasing the proportion of women in the group’s top 200 senior executive positions from around 20% currently to 30% by 2022. This target is a further step in Nestlé’s journey towards gender parity.

We believe that a more diverse workforce with more women at the top will reinforce our inclusive culture and make Nestlé an even better company. We are setting measurable goals to hold ourselves accountable. We know that improving gender balance will lead to better decisions, stronger innovation and higher employee satisfaction.

Mark Schneider, Nestlé CEO




In 2019, we have laid out an action plan to increase the number of women in senior executive positions globally. The Gender Balance Acceleration Plan includes the following specific actions:

  • Supporting all managers to foster an inclusive workplace and ensuring that they are trained on unconscious bias;
  • Encouraging the use of Nestlé’s paid parental leave program and flexible work policies in place in all Nestlé operating companies;
  • Enhancing mentoring and sponsorship programs to prepare high-potential women for senior executive positions;
  • Hiring and promoting more women in senior executive positions;
  • Reviewing results with senior leaders to promote gender balance and ensure progress;
  • Continuing our efforts to champion equal pay and eliminate conditions that create gender pay gaps;
  • Reporting progress in the Nestlé’s annual Creating Shared Value report.

Nestlé part of the Gender Equality Index 2019

The Nestlé Gender Balance Acceleration Plan strengthens our existing commitment to enhance gender balance in our workforce. We are confident that everyone, men and women, will play a key role in advancing gender equality and creating a better place to work.

Béatrice Guillaume-Grabisch, Executive Vice President, Head of Group Human Resources and Business Services
Cultural agility

With its 308,000 employees from 177 different nationalities and its presence in 189 countries, cultural agility is very important to Nestlé and we support it through different programs for Nestlé leaders and employees to:

  • Understand the impact of cultural differences on how people do business;
  • Understand how to give feedback according to different cultures;
  • Learn how communication and social behavior differs across cultures and how to adapt ourselves accordingly

These programs include cultural agility workshops and e-learning solutions.

Empowering different generations at the workplace

At Nestlé, Diversity & Inclusion measures include ensuring integration and equality for people across all generations. In 2017, Nestlé France organised a Millennials Day, which involved reverse mentoring workshops and intergenerational exchanges and debates. The day also featured a Millennials Challenge, requiring teams of millennials to develop and present proposals on how to build the ‘Nestlé of tomorrow’. The teams selected as finalists were invited to present their proposals to senior management.

Empowering people with different abilities

We aim to promote a culture that builds on strengths and focuses on abilities. We developed a global self-assessment procedure for all our markets to benchmark themselves against the level of inclusion and types of activities for people with disabilities in the workplace. The objective is to track best practices and actions in training and awareness, return-to-work practice, accessibility of sites and workplace arrangements.

Local programs aiming to increase the employment of individuals with different abilities are also put in place in different Nestlé markets. Examples include Nestlé Austria which has publicly unveiled two inclusion initiatives supported by governmental organisations FAB and WUK. Nestlé France has signed its second “Disability Group Agreement” which is founded upon three pillars:

  • Job retention for people with disabilities,
  • Recruitment and integration of people with disabilities,
  • Training and communication to make mindsets progress on the topic.




Nestlé France recognized Employer of the Year at European Diversity Awards 2014, thanks to its efforts on employment of people with disabilities.

Memimpin Bersama

We also expand our efforts to strengthen our inclusive workplace culture by raising awareness about LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, +) and collaborating with external organizations.


Since 2018, we are publicly supporting the United Nations Standards of Conduct to support the business community in tackling discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people.

Cascading Unconscious Bias

One of the catalyst solutions for sustaining a long-term diverse and inclusive culture is minimizing the hindering effects of unconscious bias in our working environment.

Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing.

The workshops and the training tools that we run on the topic are deemed very enlightening and are highly popular among our employees:

Our workshops provide the employees with the opportunity to freely express themselves, share real-life workplace biases and come to practical resolutions on their interpersonal relationships.

The training programs and testing tools that the employees have at their disposal allow them to discover and measure the biases they may be unaware of and to follow recommendations for their personal development as well as the development of our culture. In 2018, 1’464 employees received such training, bringing the total to 12’120 since 2015.

More on Unconscious Bias:

Nestlé India developed a customized module in Hindi to train factory employees; 135 union members across four factories were trained, and they cascaded the program to employees, supported by the factories’ HR teams. The programme has be extended to other factories in 2018.

Nestlé Middle East organized a two-day diversity and inclusion event for senior managers’ committee (Mancom) members, facilitated by the Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion. The Awareness Workshop in English was recorded and made available to all employees, with subtitles in Arabic and Farsi.
