Nestlé is committed to developing products that are good for you and good for the planet. Our purpose is to unlock the power of food to enhance quality of life for everyone, today and for generations to come.

A climate-centered approach

The climate crisis is exacerbating the global food crisis. Food and farming’s role in providing systemic solutions to an environmental crisis has never been better understood. We must continue to accelerate the shift toward providing systemic solutions to these challenges.

We aim to halve our carbon footprint by 2030. To achieve that, we’re transforming every aspect of our business – from converting our trucks to alternative fuels and our factories to renewable electricity to introducing packaging that uses less plastic and can be more easily recycled and reused.

Our approach is holistic and interconnected, built on our commitment to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest, while supporting human rights and putting people at the center of everything we do.


Advancing regenerative food systems at scale

Our intention to advance regenerative food systems at scale marks a profound development in our thinking. 

Each word in this phrase is important and addresses how we are accelerating our activities:

  • Advance by raising our voice and using our influence to drive progress, in collaboration with others
  • Regenerative to help protect, renew and restore farmland and landscapes
  • Food systems encompassing every actor, activity, process and product involved in growing, raising, making, delivering and consuming food
  • At scale because the planet, communities and individuals need global, systems-level change

Transforming food systems and agriculture for a resilient future

By advancing regenerative food systems and working with farmers to help them transition to regenerative agricultural practices, we can help create a more resilient future for our planet and its people.

Good for You strategy: contributing to balanced diets

Through our Good for You strategy, we aim to bring tasty and balanced diets within reach for billions, today and for generations to come. This includes a commitment to growing the nutrition value of most of our global portfolio, using the Health Star Rating (HSR) system as the basis to measure our progress.

We leverage our decades of experience and our R&D expertise to offer safe, affordable and high-quality products for people everywhere and across all life stages. We are determined to develop products that are good for you and good for the planet.

Supporting a just transition

Our aim is to provide resilient and fair livelihoods and dignified work that enable farming communities across the world to support themselves and their families. The path to regenerative agriculture is long. This is why we are helping farmers by providing financial support, remunerating good practices and offering technical and scientific guidance, through programs like the Nescafé Plan, Nespresso AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program and income accelerator program. This approach, along with the respect and promotion of human rights, is designed to contribute to a just transition to new practices throughout our supply chains.

Restoring nature, protecting biodiversity

Supporting nature is central to regenerative farming practices and essential for addressing climate change. We are working to help safeguard natural resources, in particular forests, which support much of the planet’s biodiversity. We do this through landscape initiatives as part of our Forest Positive strategy and Global Reforestation Program, as well as initiatives dedicated to water stewardship, and by sourcing ingredients that are certified deforestation-free.

Partnerships for change

Advancing regenerative food systems is about co-creating a resilient future for our planet and its people, working toward nurturing communities, improving the well-being of our consumers, and revitalizing natural ecosystems. The effort requires understanding and support from all actors involved, from governments, academia and NGOs to peer companies and competitors, financial institutions and commodity traders. We all have a part to play in helping make regenerative food systems a reality.


Benefitting people, nature and the climate

By advancing regenerative food systems and working with farmers to help them transition to regenerative agricultural practices, we can help create a more resilient future for our planet and its people.
