Nestle will switch its plant in Vyazniki to energy from wind power plants. This is done to reduce CO2 emissions. Nestle Purina Petcare in Vorsino, Kaluga region, has already switched to “green” electricity and the level of emissions has decreased by 20.5 thousand tons per year.
Now Nestle has factories in Russia in the Vologda, Vladimir, Kaluga and Samara regions, as well as in the Krasnodar and Perm regions. Another enterprise is being built in the Novosibirsk region.
“To address climate change, Nestlé Russia is accelerating work in the following priority areas: improving product assortment and packaging, switching to renewable energy sources and the principles of circular economy in production, supporting regenerative agriculture practices, improving logistics solutions, and fostering new behavior,” Interfax reports.
The company estimates that after switching factories in Russia to alternative energy sources the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere will total more than 80 thousand tons per year.
