Nestlé has seen climate change impact its business. As the company tackles the resulting challenges, it sees a prime opportunity to partner with others — both academics and competitors — to find solutions.
Nestlé is working internally but also with suppliers to ensure that despite a changing climate, there will be sustained supplies of commodities, says Paul Bakus, Nestlé's president of corporate affairs.
Nestlé has already seen a direct connection between higher temperatures and its ability to source fresh milk, Bakus told Devex in a video interview. Climate change is here and must be addressed, he suggested.
Last week, Nestlé’s U.S. operation released its Creating Shared Value report, which outlines the company’s commitments to minimizing its environmental impact — when it comes to waste, water, energy efficiency and climate change, for instance.
