Nestlé's Commitment to Regenerative Agriculture: A Sustainable Transformation

Nestlé, a global leader in the food industry, is spearheading a remarkable shift toward regenerative agriculture. This innovative approach to farming goes beyond sustainability—it aims to enhance soil health, soil fertility, protect water resources, and bolster biodiversity. By restoring soil health and capturing more carbon from the atmosphere, Nestlé is taking a vital step towards combating climate change, supporting communities, and preserving natural resources.
The Need for Change
Nestlé's Net Zero Roadmap reveals that nearly two-thirds of its greenhouse gas emissions originate from agriculture, making it imperative to address this issue. To tackle this challenge, Nestlé is introducing regenerative agriculture, a concept with immense potential to combat climate change while fostering sustainable communities.
Scaling Up for Impact
Nestlé's commitment to regenerative agriculture is unwavering. In 2022, 6.8% of its key ingredients were sourced through regenerative agriculture methods, and the goal is ambitious: by 2025, this figure will rise to 20%, and by 2030, an astounding 50%—equivalent to an estimated 14 million tonnes—of key ingredients will be sourced regeneratively.
The Pillars of Regenerative Agriculture
1. Biodiversity, Collective & Landscape Actions: Nestlé is dedicated to safeguarding and increasing biodiversity. By diversifying crops, intercropping, and planting cover crops, they enhance plant life and promote abundant animal life, benefiting soil nutrient cycles, pollination, and fertility.
2. Water Security and Quality: Nestlé is committed to protecting natural water sources and efficient water stewardship. Strategic irrigation practices and reduced chemical farm inputs help conserve water and improve its quality.
3. Soil Health: Nestlé works with over 500,000 farmers and 150,000 suppliers to promote soil health. Initiatives like crop rotation, mulching, and organic fertilizers are enhancing soil organic matter, making it more productive and resilient.
4. Diverse Cropping Systems & Livestock Integration: Nestlé integrates livestock and optimizes grazing in farming systems. These practices, including silvopasture and agroforestry, improve soil protection, water management, and provide additional income sources.
5. Collective & Landscape Actions: Nestlé extends regenerative agriculture practices beyond individual farms, benefiting entire landscapes, communities, and reducing emissions.
Investing in the Future
Nestlé's commitment to regenerative agriculture involves investing CHF 1.2 billion by 2025 to catalyze change across its supply chain. Their holistic approach includes pilot studies, reference farms, and industry alignment on common frameworks and metrics for regenerative agriculture.
A Just Transition
Nestlé's journey toward regenerative food systems is rooted in human rights, scientific guidance, investment support, and premium payments for regenerative agriculture goods. Their goal is to create a just transition that supports resilient and fair livelihoods worldwide.
Nestlé is not just transforming agriculture; they're sowing the seeds of a sustainable future for all.

    Regenerative agriculture leads to healthy soil, capable of producing high quality, while simultaneously improving, rather than degrading land.

                        It is a noble thing for Nestle to do, more company social responsibility should mainly be involved in matters of climate change.
