Nestlé contributes to study on business case to protect environment

Feb 17, 2015

Nestlé has contributed to a new report just released that aims to identify new opportunities for protecting natural resources such as water, soil and timber that underpin global supply chains and provide commercial value.

Doing business with nature (pdf, 9Mb), a collaboration between Nestlé, the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and other entities, discusses the impact that deteriorating natural resources has on economies and the implications for businesses.

The report also discusses the different responses businesses are taking to manage natural capital, such as water, throughout their operations and supply chains.

In a Foreword for the report, José Lopez, Nestlé Executive Vice President and Head of Operations, writes: “In Nestlé, we need to be able to consistently assess where to prioritise our efforts on natural capital and this report provides the knowledge base that can inform our decisions.”
