Creating Shared Value states that for our business to be successful in the long run, it must consider the needs of two primary stakeholders at once:
the local people and our shareholders.
Food and nutrition are the basis of health and of our business - it is the reason we exist.
Creating Shared Value (CSV) is a fundamental part of Nestlé’s way of doing business that focuses on specific areas of the Company’s core business activities where value can best be created both for society and shareholders.
Water is one of our most critical resources, the scarcity of which will have a drastic impact on the quality of life as well as on our business operations.
Nestlé is dedicated to continuous improvement, hence we strive to chart our progress and review our strengths and opportunities in implementing Creating Shared Value (CSV) initiatives across the Company through our Creating Shared Value Reports.
The overall wellbeing of our various stakeholders - farmers, rural communities, employees, small entrepreneurs and suppliers - is key to our continued success and the nation's development.
We recognise our responsibility to respect human rights in our operations and supply chains.
