All 23 Nestlé USA Factories Achieve Zero Waste to Landfill

Nestlé USA announced today that all of its 23 factories — spanning confections, dairy, frozen and refrigerated meals, ice cream, baking ingredients and beverages — are now landfill-free, contributing zero waste for disposal.

Nestlé’s current waste-reduction efforts include composting, recycling, energy production, and the provision of safe products for animal feed.

Employees also take actions to minimize by-products, and engage in recycling programs and partnerships with credible waste vendors that dispose of manufacturing by-products in line with Nestlé’s environmental sustainability guidelines and standards.

All of Nestlé USA’s factories employ ISO 14001 certified environmental management systems to help manage their environmental impact, including waste elimination.

Globally, Nestlé has committed to improving resource efficiency in its operations. Fifteen percent of all of Nestlé’s factories worldwide (72 in total) achieved zero waste for disposal for all of 2014. This exceeds Nestlé’s goal of having 10 percent of its global factories at this stage by 2015.
