June 20, 2017

FRANKLIN, Tenn., June 20, 2017 – Nestlé has been awarded the 2017 Verdantix EHS Innovation Award in Food & Beverage at the Verdantix Summit last month in Houston. The largest food company in the world by revenue, Nestlé is committed to setting and meeting the highest standards for safety, health and environmental sustainability. Nestlé received the prestigious award for implementing safety, health and environmental sustainability software across its 1,400 facilities worldwide. Using software from UL EHS Sustainability, Nestlé engaged more than 2,000 employees in the project.

Nestlé has been a client of UL EHS Sustainability since 2012. UL EHS Sustainability has helped Nestlé to scale its data management activities to gain further insights into safety, health and environmental sustainability indicators, which they are using to take a proactive stance on preventing incidents and ensuring their environmental performance meets their targets. Nestlé utilizes UL EHS Sustainability software across its global operations, which employ 330,000 people in almost 190 countries.

“Nestlé’s dedication to the future of health, safety and sustainability is admirable and we are very proud to partner with them in achieving these rigorous goals,” said Mark Ward, General Manager of UL EHS Sustainability. “By building a comprehensive tool combining both past performance measurement and forward-looking capabilities, Nestlé has been able to create a cutting-edge solution to drive their EHS performance improvement.”

“We believe that everyone in our business has a responsibility to help bring Nestlé’s purpose to life, which is to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.” said Philippe Le Gall, Nestlé Sustainability Manager. “UL EHS Sustainability’s software platform empowers our employees by allowing them to monitor performance and do their part to reach our safety, health, and environmental sustainability goals. Furthermore, the solution allows us the flexibility to scale our data management activities as our reporting needs evolve and our business continues to grow.”

Verdantix selects EHS Innovation Award winners through an independent jury of corporate EHS professionals. Awards are given to companies using the most innovative EHS technology to improve EHS outcomes. Nominations were based on key parameters of the project, business results achieved and strategic suppliers.
