VEVEY, Switzerland -- Nestlé joined forces with other businesses and governments in signing The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment at the Our Ocean Conference in Bali, Indonesia. Its goal to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.
 
The Global Commitment is an initiative of The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and UN Environment. It aims to rethink the future of plastics by applying the principles of circular economy, in which plastics never become waste. The Global Commitment represents a powerful framework to work collectively on solutions that address the root causes of plastics waste and pollution.
 
To achieve this goal, Nestlé has embarked on several research and development projects. One of them is the NaturAll Bottle Alliance, which aims to develop 100% bio-based PET to be used for its water business.
 
Nestlé also continues to play an active role in the development of well-functioning collection, sorting and recycling schemes across the countries where it operates.
