Nestlé Lanka has committed to making 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. Its vision is that none of its packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfill or as litter. Striving for a cleaner and greener nation, the Good Food Good Life company has launched a number of green initiatives, under its ‘Making My Sri Lanka More Sustainable’ campaign.  

“As a company deeply rooted in Sri Lanka, we believe that it is our duty and responsibility to safeguard the planet by minimising the impact of packaging on the environment. At Nestlé, we have been working on the sustainability of our brands, products and operations for years. All our Nestlé offices and facilities in Sri Lanka are driving a plastic waste-free culture and have taken a conscious call to stop plastic promotional items from April this year. Through this initiative, we will eliminate around 250 metric tonnes of plastic in 2020.” said Fabrice Cavallin, Nestlé Lanka Managing Director.  

“I am also happy to say that our Kurunegala factory has achieved ‘zero waste for disposal’, which means that nothing goes to landfill or is incinerated without energy being recovered from the process.” Fabrice further added. “We have done and are doing work to make My Sri Lanka more sustainable. However, we feel that we can still do more. We have therefore undertaken new, challenging projects to further reduce our plastic footprint in Sri Lanka and commit to making 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.”

As its latest initiative, Nestlé has joined hands with the Ministry of Education and Central Environment Authority (CEA) to raise awareness on proper waste management in schools. Through this partnership, the CEA will educate school environmental societies, empowering Sri Lanka’s future generations to spread awareness on this worthy cause. Nestlé will donate waste management units to these schools to establish a proper collection and segregation system within school premises, impacting over 150,000 children.

Further, Nestlé together with Tetra Pak and other stakeholders are pioneering the launch of Sri Lanka’s first UHT milk carton recycling facility, to be completed by March 2020.  

Preventing packaging material ending up as waste in lands, waterways and oceans is one of the key reasons behind Nestlé’s commitment.
