As part of its commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, Nestlé announces that it has launched two new projects, developed with suppliers Cargill and ETG Beyond Beans, both aimed at reducing and eliminating carbon emissions from its supply chains.

The five-year projects will promote agroforestry, accelerate the transition to regenerative agriculture, and support the reforestation of degraded lands around cocoa-growing communities," says Nestlé.

Various versatile shade tree species will be distributed to farmers, who will learn how to plant and prune trees.
Collectively, the projects aim to plant over two million shade trees on land managed by nearly 20,000 farmers in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire.

Together, the projects are expected to reduce and remove more than 500,000 metric tons of carbon over a 20-year period.
