Nestlé Australia powered by wind

Nestlé Australia has announced that it will now be relying entirely on wind-powered renewable electricity. It has partnered with CWP Renewables to make a renewable power purchase agreement. This 10-year agreement will cover Nestlé’s factories, two distribution centres, three corporate offices, 20 retail boutiques and laboratory.

The swap to renewable power will see Nestlé contributing 73,000 fewer tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere per year and is coming four years ahead of schedule.

“Achieving our sustainability commitments as we progress towards 2050 can’t wait — and neither can we. I am proud that we’ve been able to accelerate switching to 100% renewable electricity for our sites, but there’s still more to be done. This is one more step on our roadmap,” said Nestlé Oceania CEO Sandra Martinez.

“This means that when Aussies are enjoying Nestlé products made in our Australian factories, they can do so knowing that they are made by electricity that has been renewably sourced.

“This builds on the work we are already doing to rethink our packaging, build sustainable supply chains, drive carbon neutral brands and transform our product portfolio with more plant-based foods and drinks.”

The adoption of renewable electricity is one part of Nestlé’s Net Zero Roadmap, which also includes taking measures such as developing more sustainable foods, achieving carbon neutrality in its brands and altering its packaging to adhere to the 2025 National Packaging Targets. The company aims to reduce its carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.
