Nestlé joins the Africa Plastics Recycling Alliance to transform plastics recycling infrastructure - Brand Spur

This Alliance aims to turn the current challenge of plastic waste in Sub-Saharan Africa into an opportunity to create jobs and commercial activity by improving the collection and recycling of plastics.

The Africa Plastics Recycling Alliance has been established for companies to:
  • Facilitate and support their local subsidiaries to engage proactively in market level
    public-private partnerships, industry collaboration and alliances;
  • Share knowledge, encourage innovation and collaborate on technical and other solutions appropriate for Sub-Saharan Africa as well as participate in local pilot initiatives;
  • Engage with the investment community, policymakers and others to accelerate the development and financing of the necessary waste management infrastructure and systems.

This announcement follows a series of specific initiatives and steps to accelerate action to tackle plastic waste, in line with Nestlé’s commitment to making 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

It also strengthens Nestlé’s initiatives in the Sub-Saharan African region to shape a waste-free future. These include active participation in organizations like GRIPE (Ghana Recycling Initiative by Private Enterprises) to improve waste management practices in Ghana as well as FBRA (The Food & Beverage Recycling Alliance) to pioneer the establishment of an industry compliance model on the Extended Producer Responsibility program in Nigeria.
