In 2021, Nestlé Hungária is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The Hungarian subsidiary of the Swiss food group is the largest Swiss investor, employer and food company in Hungary. Nestlé Hungária remains highly active and plans its future on sustainability and automatization.
The company is not only proud of its history, but also looks to the future. Last year, Nestlé announced its global action plan addressing climate change with a pledge to reach net zero emissions by 2050. The ambition is to minimize their carbon emissions across the entire value chain from raw material production to the path to consumers.
They promote sustainable agricultural practices to contribute to a renewable, regenerative food production and supply system, and offset its remaining GHG emissions with state-of-the-art nature oriented and climate friendly solutions.
Nestlé Hungária has achieved tangible progress in this area. All three Hungarian factories have been using 100% green electricity since 2017 eliminating carbon footprint from electricity. The company also continuously explores opportunities for using other renewable sources (e.g. geothermal energy) in the production processes and ensures that no waste from the factories ends in landfills: they are recycled or utilised for heat generation.
Innovative, environmentally friendly packaging
As the world’s largest food company, Nestlé is committed to use its size, scale, and power
to tackle the issue of packaging waste and pursue a vision that none of their packaging ends up in a landfill or in the environment but achieve a circular solution.
Nestlé accelerates its global efforts to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable
and reduce the use of virgin plastics by one-third by 2025. 87% of Nestlé packaging globally is already recyclable or reusable.
The Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences in Switzerland, the first such undertaking of this kind, plays a key role in developing and testing new, environmentally friendly packaging materials. Promising research results from the Institute include the latest refillable or reusable packaging solutions, high-performance barrier papers, simplified, biodegradable or compostable packaging materials, and the increased use of recyclable content in Nestlé’s packaging. Thanks to these efforts, all packaging used in the Diósgyőr factory (NE Hungary) is now designed for recycling – meaning all the packaging materials are recyclable if the appropriate collection, selection and recycling infrastructure is available.
