Improving packaging performance

a 700ml bottle made from 100% recycled plastic called rPET. With a modern, premium design, the bottle reflects our commitment not just to protecting the environment, but to helping people drink more water. We also reduced the plastic content of our 500ml Nestlé Waters bottles by over 60%, which avoids the use of more than 2.7 million tonnes of plastic. In November 2018, we signed an agreement with recycled plastics producer CarbonLITE – this means the supplier is building a production facility near two of our bottling plants.

Additionally, all of our single-serve bottles of Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water and Nestlé Pure Life? Purified Water produced in California are made with 50% recycled plastic. In Europe, we use bio-based plastic for our Levissima bottles, with it making up 30% of our still water bottles and 16% of our 1.5L sparkling water bottles.

Signing up to four new plastic pledges in Europe

As a member of the , we’re proud to support the federation’s four new industry-wide pledges aimed at reducing plastic waste and creating a circular economy. In particular, these pledges aim to collect more PET bottles and give them a second life, as well as using more recycled plastic when creating new bottles. They are:

  • Collect 90% of all PET bottles by 2025, as an EU average.
  • Collaborate with the recycling industry to use at least 25% recycled PET (rPET) in water bottles by 2025, as an EU average.
  • Innovate and invest further in eco-design and research on non-fossil-based plastic materials.
  • Engage with consumers, who play a key role in preventing littering.

We already support several schemes in Europe aimed at increasing recycling, including the campaign and the deposit return scheme being introduced in the UK. In the US, we support the , and .

The packaging of the future

Doing his part to help protect the environment is motivation for Xavier Caro as he works to develop new packaging materials at Nestlé’s Product Technology Centre in Germany. He has dedicated his career to making packaging more sustainable.

“It’s not good enough just to design the packaging and make it recyclable,” he says. “It’s important to consider how the packaging will be collected and then recycled.” Caro’s team has been working with recycling authorities in Europe for some time, and they’re now collaborating with authorities and other stakeholders in Africa and Asia to develop innovative packaging solutions.

When designing packaging, Caro’s team aims to use as few raw materials as possible and to increase recyclability. “We are trying to really establish a sustainable business model in line with the circular economy approach.”

The sustainability potential of aluminum coffee pods

From the beginning, we’ve been using aluminum to make our Nespresso coffee pods, not only because it protects the flavor and freshness of coffee, but because it is an infinitely recyclable material. Nearly 75% of the aluminum ever produced . That means that we can use recycled aluminum to make the pods, which can then be recycled again.

Working with the International Union for Conservation of Nature and others, we initiated the aluminum industry’s first global standard for traceability and socio-environmental performance, the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative. We also invest in dedicated recycling challenges and collective schemes.
