Committed to reducing our footprint
At every step in our production process, or Product Value Chain, we look for ways to trim our carbon emissions. In 2007, we conducted our first Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory. We looked at the Product Value Chain of our entire operation -- from upstream suppliers, to how we source, to our products, all the way through transportation. We also included impacts from contract carriers and estimated the carbon embedded in the plastic of our bottles.
The study indicated that Nestlé Waters Canada's GHG emissions in 2008 were 2.128 million tons of CO2e. This is 0.03% of all the emissions in America in that year.
Since then, we’ve significantly reduced our footprint. The charts below show where we are today, but we’re not done. We’re continually evaluating our process to go even further.
