Supply Chain
A Just Transition:
How Nestlé is Taking a New Approach Across Our Value Chain

Whether in our personal lives or in business, doing only what is required or expected is generally unsatisfying. If your plan of action means doing the bare minimum, the status quo is the likely result.

This is how businesses become irrelevant or lose market share as the world speeds by. For more than 150 years, Nestlé has thrived as a business pushing the boundaries of progress.

“Every Nestlé partnership is an opportunity to improve lives, not simply to grow our business.”

— CEO Mark Schneider

We've taken this same approach with a bold plan that reflects our deep commitment to help address climate change. Nestlé takes a comprehensive approach to our products and business to measure our impact, and we aren't stopping there. Now, we're taking into account our suppliers' impacts and scouring our business ecosystem to see where and how we can drive equitable change.

The latest in measuring regenerative outcomes

Join us as representatives from Biomimicry 3.8, HowGood and Interface share case studies from measuring regenerative outcomes in supply chains, manufacturing and facilities management — Wednesday, October 20 at SB'21 San Diego.

I invite skeptics who doubt whether business can be a force for good in our world to take a look at Nestlé's Net Zero Roadmap. Our detailed plan transparently lays out every step and tool needed for us to reach net zero emissions, not just in our operations but well beyond. The tireless and thoughtful work of our colleagues around the world have positioned Nestlé to make an enormous contribution toward improving the climate impact of food systems. The global challenge before us will not abate with meek actions — we must accelerate climate work that goes farther and faster, regenerating our ecosystems and driving equity throughout our supply chain.
