Doing Better By The Environment
A Nestlé case study

Page 1: Introduction

The environment is a key subject that affects us all. Protection of the environment and the move towards sustainable development remains a responsibility that must be shared between the public, governments and the private sector. Following years of work on environmental issues dating back to the 30's, in 1996 the Nestlé Environmental Management System (NEMS) was introduced which consolidates all environmental measures taken by the Nestlé Group. NEMS is now used to ensure continuous improvement in Nestlé's environmental performance covering all its business activities.

This case study examines the background to sustainable development, the environment and its protection. It also looks at how Nestlé S.A., the world's leading food company, developed a policy and current business practices that reduce the company's effect on the environment.
