We are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our operations. That’s why during every step of our production cycle, from manufacturing to delivery, Nestlé Waters North America works diligently to find efficiencies across our facilities, fleet and operations.
Specifically, we are focused on increasing our overall water efficiency and maintaining certifications such as ISO 14000 and U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Some of our accomplishments so far include:
- Between 2009 and 2014, we saw a 14 percent reduction in greenhouse emissions per 1,000 liters of packaged beverages produced due to efficiencies in areas such as packing, production, and transportation.
- We’re using low emission vehicles in our fleet, alternative transportation approaches such as rail, and technology that optimizes routes for fuel efficiency.
- We’re investing in renewable energy and finding ways to use water and energy more efficiently.
- In 2020, we announced that ReadyRefresh® by Nestlé® direct-to-consumer beverage delivery service has achieved carbon neutrality and earned the CarbonNeutral® company certification for the year 2020 in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, a global standard for carbon neutral programs.
