Doing Better By The Environment
A Nestlé case study

Page 7: Nestle´s Environmental Management System

NEMS is an organisational tool at the heart of Nestlé's programme for the environment, and sets the framework for all measures applied.

The NEMS objectives include:

  • To provide a systematic approach that ensures compliance with Nestlé's environmental policy, relevant laws and Nestlé's operational standards.
  • To ensure the continuous improvement of Nestlé's environmental performance, e.g. through the conservation of natural resources and the minimisation of waste.
  • To achieve compatibility with international voluntary standards on environmental management systems.
  • To build mutual trust with consumers, governmental authorities and business partners.

NEMS is being implemented throughout Nestlé S.A.'s entire operation.
