Nestlé is the 4th biggest plastic polluter in the world but wants us to believe that the environment is its priority...

No one is fooled!

Call on Nestlé to switch to reusable packaging now.


Congrats to Nestlé for making it to the top 4 worst plastic polluters in the world for the 4th year in a row!

This is mediocrity at its best for the Swiss multinational.

Nestlé has announced that it is aiming for 0 emissions, including those linked to the production of plastics, by 2050. But as one of the biggest planet-destroying corporations, this isn’t nearly ambitious enough to stop catastrophic climate change.

If Nestlé wants to be credible, the company must act now!

Tell Nestlé to reduce packaging and replace all its plastic packaging with reusable ones by 2025.

It's the Break Free from Plastic Alliance that identified Nestlé as one of the world's biggest plastic polluters. For months, thousands of volunteers collected plastic waste in parks, on beaches, in forests, in cities... They were able to identify the brands behind the plastic pollution.

Nestlé pollutes our planet with plastic waste that kills marine and terrestrial animals by trapping them and making them sick.

But by producing this plastic packaging, Nestlé is also directly polluting the environment. Nestlé's plastic is produced from plastic resin by petrochemical companies such as Exxon, Total, Aramco or Shell. The process of manufacturing plastic, as well as the extraction of the raw materials for it, releases gargantuan amounts of CO2.

While Nestlé has set a goal to end carbon emissions, the IPCC report predicts unprecedented climate chaos in 2050 if nothing is done in the next three years. Worse, a report by the Breakthrough-National Centre for Climate Restoration based on a more pessimistic model, simply forecasts the end of civilization in 2050 if nothing is done in the coming years.

This climate carnage must stop now!

Call on Nestlé to use reusable packaging in order to reach its zero emissions target by 2035.

Last spring, hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members like you pushed BNP to set more ambitious targets for ending deforestation, and we won! And in 2020, we pushed Apple to adopt a more ambitious human rights policy.

Will you help rally again to push Nestlé to do the right thing for our planet?

Yes, I'll ask Nestlé to commit to only manufacture and use reusable packaging by 2025.


Thanks for all that you do,
Ibrahim and the team at SumOfUs
