Nestlé has launched a global Maternity Protection Policy for its employees worldwide that is estimated to be one of the most progressive programmes of its kind in the industry.

The policy, which is based on the ILO Maternity Protection Convention, establishes minimum standards that must be implemented at Nestlé workplaces across the world by 2018.

The policy gives employees a minimum of 14 weeks paid maternity leave and the right to extend their maternity leave up to six months. This will be applicable to all primary caregivers of newborns, including male employees and adoptive parents.

It also includes employment protection, flexible working arrangements and guaranteed access to breastfeeding rooms during working hours in head offices and sites with more than 50 employees. Nestlé currently has more than 190 breastfeeding rooms across its global working facilities.

Peter Vogt, Deputy Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Nestlé S.A. said: “This policy will help us better support mothers and their families in our sites across the world and reinforces our support for exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months of a child’s life.”

In the Philippines, Nestlé has a maternity package which is recognized as one of the best in the industry. Available to female employees since the 1990’s are 2 weeks of paid leave before delivery and 3 months maternity leave with pay after delivery. In January 2014, Nestlé Philippines improved this benefit even more to make available to female employees the option to avail of an additional up to 3 months leave without pay to allow them the flexibility to spend more time with their new-born children. Because parenting is a joint responsibility, the Company has likewise improved its paternity leave benefit, from 7 days to 10 days so husbands can provide full support to their wives immediately after delivery.

A partnership between Nestlé Philippines and Green Antz Builders, Inc., an innovative social enterprise based in Pulilan, Bulacan which produces alternative construction materials incorporating waste plastic laminates, is addressing an environmental issue while involving communities including schoolchildren in waste collection, and providing livelihood opportunities.

Green Antz, which was established with Nestlé’s support, collaborates with corporations, LGUs and NGOs to establish Green Antz Hubs for the production of eco-bricks using waste plastic laminates which are cheaper to use and offer better insulation. Eco-bricks are much more durable than regular hollow blocks. The production of eco-bricks utilizes compression unlike hollow blocks which are made through moulding. Making eco-bricks involves a proprietary process which hollow blocks do not undergo, and the formulation incorporates a special construction additive which makes eco-bricks stronger, enabling plastic and cement to adhere together.

Nestlé today announced its accelerated plan towards reaching the company’s 2020 No Deforestation commitment (pdf, 200Kb) by becoming the first global food company to implement Starling, a satellite-based service, to monitor 100% of its global palm oil supply chains. Starling was developed by Airbus and The Forest Trust (TFT) as a global verification system evidencing that no deforestation is taking place throughout the supply chain.

Deforestation is a serious and complex issue and addressing it requires the entire industry working together towards greater transparency, inclusiveness, direct supply chain engagement and capacity building throughout the supply chain.

The Philippine Alliance for Recycling and Materials Sustainability (PARMS) and the city government of Parañaque will address the environmental challenge of plastic waste by building and operating a sachet recycling plant in the city.

Recently, PARMS officers led by President Crispian Lao, concurrent commissioner and vice chairman of the National Solid Waste Management Commission, called on Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez in a design turnover event during which they presented the proposed design of the recycling facility. The design turnover event was held to celebrate Earth Day 2018.

The PARMS-Parañaque plastic recycling plant is expected to be operational within 2018, and is part of a movement to recover and transform waste into assets that communities can use.
