Focus: Nestlé’s focus on sustainable paper
(Switzerland, December 2016) Nestlé bought 1.58 million tonnes of pulp and paper in 2015, much of it from paper mills, converters and packaging manufacturers in Europe, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and the United States. It is used for food packaging, wrapping and transportation, although we also need paper for office stationery and marketing materials.
Well over 35% of the pulp and paper Nestlé uses involves recycled materials. Recycling in the pulp and paper industry is well established but food safety, quality and physical properties prevent us from using 100% recycled material. Recycled material is considered not to add to deforestation, so we do not map and assess the upstream recycled supply chain for the same concerns as we would for ‘virgin’ pulp and paper.
