Garden Gourmet CO₂-neutral in 2022

  • 08 March 2021

Nestlé's Garden Gourmet is accelerating its approach to climate change and announces it will reach the CO₂-neutral goal by 2022. Garden Gourmet is achieving its goal through years of action throughout the chain from farm to fork. This began, of course, with measuring the CO₂ emissions in every step of the chain. Based on this, the brand takes targeted action to remove or reduce CO₂ emissions, for example through European sourcing of key ingredients. For example, Garden Gourmet uses 100% deforestation-free soy for its products and is now working towards its goal of using 100% European soy. Its cardboard packaging is fully recyclable and its centrally located European production site runs on 100% renewable energy. The brand is also exploring carbon offset opportunities by investing in projects such as promoting biodiversity. The actions the brand is taking are part of 'Nestlé's Net Zero Roadmap'. In February, Nestlé announced it would halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Net-zero means the company will dramatically reduce its farm-to-table greenhouse gas emissions and remove its remaining emissions from the atmosphere with projects that store carbon in soil and trees.

On the road to net-zero

Valerie van Schaick, Business Executive Officer Food at Nestlé Netherlands: "In the constant improvement of our products, reducing our carbon footprint is as important as contributing to healthy, nutritious food. We are super proud to be one of the first Nestlé brands to reach the carbon neutral goal by 2022."
