At Nestlé Canada, we know that plastic pollution is a global challenge that requires immediate action and we commend the Canadian government for taking steps to minimize the impact of single-use plastics on our environment.
We are working hard to eliminate non-recyclable plastics from our brands and will continue to work with our industry associations and the government on solutions that will help ensure that none of our product packaging, including plastics, ends up in the landfill or as litter, including in seas, oceans and waterways.
To achieve this, our ambition is that 100% of our packaging is reusable or recyclable by 2025. We are also working with value chain partners and industry associations to explore different packaging solutions to reduce plastic usage and develop new approaches to eliminating plastic waste.
Working with others, we can improve plastic recycling and collection rates. As such, we support the development of an effective and harmonized recycling system.
We remain strongly committed to minimizing the impact Nestlé has on the natural environment, including ensuring recycling or reuse of our packaging and look forward to being an active participant in discussions toward solutions.
