Nestlé Jamaica says it is on track to achieve its zero waste to landfill target by 2020 at its new South Street Ferry Pen facility.
“The programme, which includes a raft of environmentally sustainable tactics geared towards reversing the facility’s carbon footprint, has common ground across Nestlé’s global operations,” the company said in a news release.
It added that to date, the company has achieved zero waste to landfill from its Distribution Centre operations. This comes amidst a plan announced in the first quarter of 2018 by Nestlé SA to move away from plastic in packaging, which has positioned the company’s operations towards attaining leading-edge sustainable environmental standards.
Nestlé explained that its pursuit to become a zero waste production facility has become entrenched in its policies and facilities. The company said that resources provided for its team members will secure a reduction in the carbon footprint inside and outside the office.
The Distribution Centre has been added to the list of sites that have achieved the global objective for all Nestlé sites to eliminate waste to landfill by 2020.
