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.
