Microphone How Nestlé links social and environmental supply chain goals

Anna Turrell, head of sustainability for UK and Ireland at Nestlé, talks with Ian Welsh about the challenges in tackling modern slavery issues, and why the business’s first step was to align, as far as possible, with the UN guiding principles on business and human rights. They discuss why different supply chains, including palm oil and cocoa, can require very specific approaches – and that a holistic approach encompassing environmental and social goals is typically what works best. 

Turrell also outlines what Nestlé is doing to develop better packaging, reducing plastic use where feasible while working to encourage the sort of sector-wide innovation necessary to radically increase reuse and recycling rates.
