Nestlé has announced its new 2020 commitments together with three long-term ambitions, in support of the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Nestlé’s long-term ambitions are:
- to help 50 million children to lead healthier lives;
- to help improve 30 million livelihoods in communities directly connected to their business activities; and
- to strive for zero environmental impact in their operations.
Meanwhile, Nestlé will also continue to work to bring its societal commitments to fruition through three impact areas: individuals and families, its communities, and the planet.
One example is a global commitment to reduce the amount of sugar Nestlé adds to its products by 5% by 2020. In Europe alone, reaching this target will mean Nestlé will need to remove at least 18,000 tonnes of sugar from its products.
