Nestlé Philippines and Republic Cement (CRH-Aboitiz) have entered into an agreement to co-process post-consumer plastic waste in the company’s cement kilns. 

"We are happy to partner with Nestlé Philippines and to help address pollution from residual plastics and sachets. This is a win-win situation for us and the environment. Together, we can build a greener, stronger Republic," said Nabil Francis, director of Republic Cement.

In April 2018 Nestlé globally announced a commitment that 100 per cent of its packaging will be recyclable or reusable by 2025.

"Nestlé is aiming for plastic neutrality, which is essentially recovering plastics equal to what we produce. Aside from our current collection and recycling initiatives, we believe this effort will help us gather and co-process bigger volumes of post-consumer waste. We target to divert more post-consumer waste from landfills and the ocean. This partnership will contribute positively in helping clean-up the Philippines," said Kais Marzouki, CEO, Nestlé Philippines.
