Nestlé ha deciso di firmare l'European Plastics Pact, lanciato da Francia e Paesi Bassi per accelerare la transizione verso un'economia circolare della plastica. Il Patto - viene spiegato - aiuterà Nestlé a raggiungere l'obiettivo del 100% di imballaggi riciclabili o riutilizzabili e a ridurre di un terzo l'utilizzo di plastica vergine entro il 2025. L'European Plastics Pact riunisce aziende leader, così come ONG e governi, che si impegnano a raggiungere insieme obiettivi comuni entro il 2025, andando anche oltre l'attuale legislatura.

Children as young as eight picked coffee beans on farms supplying Starbucks

Nespresso also named in TV exposé of labour scandal in Guatemala.
