The issue of climate change presents one of the most difficult decision-making challenges a CEO might face - a case study in balancing uncertainty with costs to bring about changes that will require significant lead times. Businesses like ours that take climate change seriously are investing today because we’re thinking about tomorrow.

July 24, 2020 /3BL Media/ - HENRi is one of Nestlé's open innovation platforms set up to help harness the ideas and passion of external partners, especially from the start-up sector. As we celebrate HENRi's fourth birthday, I look at some of the successes that have shaped its story so far.
To continually improve what we do – and push the boundaries of what is possible with foods, beverages, and nutritional health solutions – we need to work closely with outside partners.
Today, those external collaborations are central to our pursuit of innovation.
Shedding light on our efforts to fight deforestation in our cocoa supply chains
From the road, we could see some dead forest trees emerging above the cocoa canopy. With their branchless and barkless trunks, the dead trees cut an ominous figure, contrasting with the lush green of the surrounding forest.
While the dead forest trees were not located on cocoa farms in the Nestlé Cocoa Plan, they were symptomatic of the complex issue we have grappled with for years: deforestation in cocoa supply chains.

The ins and outs of our partnership with OneTreePlanted
Climate change and biodiversity loss are on everyone’s minds these days – as they should be.
Experts agree that reforesting our planet is critical if we are to reverse biodiversity loss and head off the worst of climate change. Because trees provide habitat to a number of species, store water, absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen through photosynthesis, they are one of our best allies.
