Sustainable Practices

Focus on Sustainable Practices

Nestlé is continually striving to improve our operational efficiency and environmental performance. By applying new and innovative approaches at each stage of a product’s life cycle, and by assessing the impacts of our operations, we are contributing to a better future and Creating Shared Value for both Nestlé and society.

Here are just a few examples:

  • During the past three years, Nestlé Canada has invested more than $11.5 million in its food service factory in Trenton, Ontario, to improve efficiency, reduce its environmental footprint and further strengthen its food safety program. 

  • In 2009-2010, Nestlé Canada invested $6.8 million to add two new ice cream novelty lines at its factory in London, Ontario. Six full-time, 21 part-time and more than 150 seasonal employees were hired to manage the increased production.

  • Nestlé Waters Canada invested $15 million to expand its distribution centre in Puslinch, Ontario, in 2009. That expansion will reduce the number of truckloads annually by 1,500 trips.

  • Nestlé Waters Canada invests more than $2 million annually in its Puslinch and Hope bottling facilities to ensure they exceed internal and external compliance requirements related to food safety, energy reduction and environmental sustainability.
