For a 3rd consecutive year, Nestlé Singapore has been awarded the distinguished 3R Award for efforts towards a sustainable environment.
Nestlé Singapore was first awarded the 3R Packaging Award (Merit) in 2008, followed by the Distinction Award in 2009. In 2010, we were one of only two companies to be awarded both the Distinction and Platinum 3R Awards in the same year.
Nestlé is committed to reducing the environmental impact of packaging without compromising the safety, quality or consumer acceptance of its products. We actively seek packaging solutions that:
|1.||Result in the lowest possible weight and volume of packages whilst still maintaining pack integrity.|
|2.||Incorporate new packaging materials and processes that reduce the impact on the environment.|
|3.||Avoid the use of substances that can adversely impact the environment during packaging and disposal.|
|4.||Decrease packaging waste at all stages in the supply chain.|
|5.||Increase the use of recycled materials wherever possible and increase recyclability and compatibility of packages with existing waste management schemes.|
It is our aim that through such efforts, we will contribute less to the carbon footprint and more towards a sustainable environment for future generations.
