In its latest milestone in tackling plastic waste as an urgent corporate priority, Nestlé Philippines has achieved plastic neutrality, recovering 2,400 metric tons of plastic waste equivalent to the plastic in its packaging in August, and will sustain neutrality every month.

In January 2019, food and beverage manufacturer Nestlé globally articulated its broader vision for a waste-free future, that none of its packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfills and oceans, or as litter. Today, just over a year and a half later, Nestlé Philippines Chairman and CEO Kais Marzouki announced that the company has reached its latest milestone in pursuit of that vision by achieving plastic neutrality for the month of August.
