cut methane

& come clean now

Nestlé is among the largest food companies in the world, with a huge climate footprint. A large chunk of its emissions come from dairy and consist of very powerful, but short-lived greenhouse gas: methane. Our estimates show that Nestlé’s methane emissions are two times higher than the entire livestock sector in Switzerland. Yet, Nestlé is completely failing to address methane emissions in its climate plan.

Beyond methane, Nestlé’s climate plan is completely failing to align with UN recommendations, and we found that as a result, the company is unlikely to achieve the promised 50% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030. Since 2018, Nestlé’s emissions have reduced by only 1%.

There is no silver bullet for meat and dairy companies to cut their methane emissions, but reporting their methane emissions separately and setting a methane-specific target as part of their climate plan is an essential first step.

Nestlé must stop ignoring its methane blindspot and come clean now.
