Nestlé commits to cutting plastic pollution
Nestlé has signed up to a world-first pact as part of plans to transform the plastic packaging system in the UK.
The UK Plastic Pact has been launched by sustainability experts WRAP, which brings together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain alongside UK governments and NGOs.
Nestlé, along with other members of the pact, will share commitments in order to reduce the impact of plastic waste across the world.
Stefano Agostini, CEO for Nestlé UK & Ireland said: “We are proud to be founding members of the UK Plastics Pact and believe it clearly demonstrates how seriously Nestlé take our responsibility to make a difference on this issue.
“There needs to be action taken and we believe we will achieve real results if we work together, across the full supply chain, to improve the recyclability of plastic in the UK. That’s why this pact will be so valuable.”
Earlier this month, Nestlé announced a global aim to make all of its packaging either recyclable or reusable by 2025.
