Nestlé and European Clean Trucking Alliance call for more sustainable road freight

Published: 15/07/2020

Nestlé has joined other partners in founding the European Clean Trucking Alliance. This unique coalition brings together NGOs, shippers, logistics and consumer goods companies. Together they share the goal of accelerating the decarbonization of road freight transport in the EU.

As European countries seek to recover from COVID-19, Nestlé and the other members of this Alliance urge governments to invest in and speed up the shift towards greener transport. Further reducing CO2 and air pollution from road transport will help achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal and make Europe the first carbon-neutral continent.

Nestlé is already on the road to a net zero emissions future. In September 2019, the company announced its ambition to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Nestlé will soon publish a plan consistent with this aim, including interim targets.

Some of specific actions to improve Nestlé’s transport and distribution operations include:
