The Nestlé Community Environment Program (NCEP) has been running since 2003. NCEP aims to identify and facilitate projects which enhance the local environment in which our facilities operate.
Nestlé Oceania sites liaise with local authorities as well as community and environment groups to find suitable projects, and Nestlé employees and members of the local community directly participate in many of them. Each Oceania site contributes NZ $25,000 each year to a local environmental project. On top of the financial contribution our people actively participate directly in the projects and dedicate their time, energy and expertise.
Our community involvement initiatives come together around the areas where we are well placed to make a difference, namely food, health, nutrition, education and promoting active lifestyles. We are also focused on improving the environmental sustainability within the communities where we operate.
