Nestlé joined over 150 major multinationals in urging governments around the world to align their COVID-19 economic aid and recovery efforts with the latest climate science.

By signing this statement, supportive companies reaffirm their own science-based commitments to achieving net-zero carbon emissions. They also call on governments to prioritize a faster and fairer transition from a grey to a green economy.

The statement comes as governments around the world work on packages to help recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and as they prepare to submit enhanced national climate plans under the Paris agreement. The initiative intends to unite businesses and governments in recovering better and delivering the greatest positive impact for people, prosperity, and the planet.

In September 2019, Nestlé pledged to work on achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The company has thus accepted the ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement, which will limit the rise in global temperature to 1.5°C.

In this way, but also with a decade of dedicated work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Nestlé has accelerated its actions to tackle climate change. In the past four years alone, the company has aligned its business with science-based goals to keep temperature rise below 2°C.

Signatories will continue to demonstrate that the best decisions and actions are grounded in science, invest in recovery and resilience for systemic socio-economic transformations and work with governments and scale up the movement.

Mark Schneider, Nestlé CEO said: “Let’s work together to create a more sustainable and resilient world. We will play our part and are committed to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.”
